ENGLISH VIDEO:

I am a fine art photographer based in Turku, Finland. I explore the interactions, relationships and juxtapositions formed when landscape, architecture and people come together. I have always been printing my work, first by traditional film process & development and now by using a digital workflow.

FINNISH VIDEO:

Olen turkulainen valokuvataiteilija. Asun Piispankadun historiallisella puutaloaluella kuvaten usein asuinympäristöäni. Kuvaan myös paljon saariston herkkää luontoa. Ulkomaille suuntaan kun kuvaan vuonna 2014 New Yorkissa aloittamaani sarjaa tanssijoista suurkaupungin sykkeessä. Pääteemani on ihmisen ja ympäristön välinen vuorovaikutus ja vastakkainasettelu hetkinä kun ihminen, maisema ja arkkitehtuuri kohtaavat toisensa. Vesan teoksia on myynnissä Taikossa, www.taiko.fi/vesaloikas.

I personally know the people behind TAIKO: Pia & Patrik - and they are delivering a great product for Finnish artists. Below is their story in short (text from their WEBSITE Taiko.fi )

What is Taiko
Taiko is an art webshop for original Finnish art. It is the natural meeting place for the professional artist and buyers in all of Finland. Taiko offers a wide variety of paintings, prints, photo art and sculptures in different price categories. You may filter your searches through a versatile search function, for instance by price, size, theme and technique. Through Taiko's unique picture service Taiko Test you can visualize how an artwork fits in your own home or office before buying the object.
Taiko serves in three languages: English, Finnish and Swedish. ...
Taiko does not sell so called print art, only authentic artworks. This means, that a painting or sculpture bought on Taiko is unique. Even if graphic prints and photo art may be produced in series, they are unique in the sense every artwork is signed and numbered.
Taiko only offers art by professional artists. To guarantee the quality of the selection, every Taiko artist has been approved based on certain criteria.
Taiko may, thanks to its concept, offer a limitless amount of artwork. All artworks are stored by the artists, which means that Taiko does not have any storing limitations.
