At the very moment, my latest paintings are hanging in my hometown, in the gallery Palkki next to the new library of Palokka. The title of the exhibition - including also two other artists coming from the same town - is "Roots in Palokka". The other two artists showing their work are Marja Patrikainen and Päivi Hintsanen. I like the idea of bringing my art close to the people. This exhibition is held very next to a public library, so people are passing the gallery on their way and will be exposed to art all of a sudden! In this exhibition, most paintings are painted 2016-2017 in the old wallpaper factory in Tapanila, Helsinki. That is; Milko's portrait, my self portrait "in existential pain"
