Bio I was born in Jyväskylä in 1977. I became interested in the arts as a little boy while watching my father Kari work on stone sculptures.
At that time, "Sparkle" came on. My journey continues in Pykälistö area, Jyväskylä. Pykälistö is a former watch house from 1898 and area plays important role in my working life. I work culturally historically valuable milieu. We are developing this area towards Finnish “Cultural Oasis”.
I like working with hard materials. I work with metals and stone. In addition, bronze casting has taken me to a fascinating journey of shapes. I am trying to create works that will bring good mood to viewers. Nature, dreams and imagination inspires me.
I've been doing sculpture since 2000 and participated in the exhibitions in Finland and abroad. In summer 2012 I won Billnäs Young Artist´s Competition. My "Citybird" is my most famous work. In addition, Citybird won the S-Art Award in the spring of 2013. In 2018, I get the national Von Wright Innovation Award.
By nature I am an extrovert and sensitive to new opportunities. My work is based on long-term work and brave material experiments. Still I don’t want to haggle over my artistic goals.
I'm trying to expand my exhibitions to new areas. I hope for the next few
years to get more interesting challenges.
