I feel strongly about sustainable development and like to give back to the nature and society alike. Both nature and the community of us sharing the environment has inspired me endlessly and I'm glad to have been able to do my part as an artist. I have experimented with recycled materials for years. Many of my works feature materials that I've sourced from recycling centres or just by the roadside. Like they say, one man's trash is another one's treasure! Even more so when I get to give something a whole new lease of life. It's all part of the circular economy, something I really believe in and want to be a part of.
Art should be accessible and available to all. I consider myself lucky to be living in a society that is more caring than many others. Social welfare, equal opportunities, communal spaces. Those are important to me and I wish to do my par as an artist and member of the community. I strongly feel that art belongs to everyone, regardless of the size of the wallet. This is why I offer special prices for students or others on limited budgets. Art has the power to bring happiness and joy into the life of he or she who observes it and it's my pleasure to get to share the experience! Get in touch to find out more.
" The links between art and happiness are a scientific fact. A 2011 University College London study showed that the brain’s dopamine levels and prefrontal activity increase while observing a beautiful piece of art. The neural response is comparable to that of falling in love, no less.."
"Art made of recycled materials. It’s all about the circular economy. Art and sustainable development go hand in hand. Art should also be accessible to all." - Paavo Stenius
