Curriculum vitae


I started my sculpture studies in 2001 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki and I graduated as a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in 2008. In 1988-1993 I studied medicine at the University of Helsinki and after that I have worked as a licensed doctor several years. 

 

In my art works I combine various traditional sculpture and new media techiques. I am interested in combining visual arts traditions with the field of digital technologies in order to elaborate on a new artistic language generated by 3d modeling and computer algorithms. At the moment I am exploring parametric 3d modeling to create and analyze the relationships between geometric entities, dimensions and shapes. 


My works have been exhibited in solo and group shows both in Finland and abroad. Last year I made a public art work called Parkour in the suburs of Vuores in the City of Tampere combining 3d modeling and 3d printing in metal casting. I am currently making a public art work Dew Drops to Satakunta Region Hospital.
