Finished this a while ago.

It took 9 painting sessions with acrylic paints to get this done, and the feeling on the Sunday when I but my signature on it was great.

Most importantly the owner of this piece was very pleased with the outcome.

“All you need is love” painted on a 147cm x 297cm concrete pillar with acrylics.

Pylväs

A very public piece.

art, Painting, Portrait

I was commissioned a while ago to do a painting on a pillar at a local pub called 60’s palaver. The pub has a 60’s theme and they wanted something that would fit the place, I had a few ideas immediately but the one I have a picture of was the best.

I am painting a pillar inside the restaurant and I am doing this while the bar is open. This means that the painting process can be seen by anyone who is there to enjoy a drink or a few. Every Thursday from now on I am gathering my equipment and heading of to do a session of painting, and every Thursday people can see more progress that will eventually lead to a finished piece that fits the 60’s themed really nicely.

Here’s the sketch I did on a smaller scale.

And here’s what I got done after 6 hours last Thursday.

Rocking it!

Rocking it! On tour.

These paintings have been touring around the town for a while now. I found a place for them for the rest of the year, partially because I have so much other stuff to do and to focus on that I don’t want to be moving them around all the time.

This is the space they are displayed at right now.

I also made a little poster to tour with the paintings.

Have fun!

Gods of rock

Mixed media, Rock

It has been a while since the last post or update, that means that I have been working like crazy.

I did finish this set of five rock legends, For now the set is called Gods of rock.

The pieces are done with spray paints and markers on paper. Dimensions are 102 x 124 cm. The framing has been done by me and my friend and I instead of glass I desided to get some plexiglass.

The pictures are moving around the town and next they are going to be displayed at the public library of Joensuu.

Here’s a couple of pictures of them from a small exhibiton.
