Finland, Finlandia….

Thursday, December 7th, 2017


Hi everyone!


After Finaland’s 100 yrs birthay in 6.12.

we celebrate again.


8.12. is

Jean Sibelius and Finnish music day.


Here’s one of my favorite Sibelius music, Finlandia.



“Finlandia, Op. 26, is a tone poem by the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.

It was written in 1899 and revised in 1900.“

My gouache painting was inspired by Sibelius’s music…

Sibelius, Kusama and me

Thursday, December 8th, 2016



is composer Jean Sibelius‘s day

(8.12.1865 – 20.9.1057)

I love his music.


Finlandia Hymn is mostly sung in Finnish but

these guys sing it quite well in English, right?


There are lots of versions of this piece also called ‘A Song of Peace’.




The other day I visited HAMHelsinki


Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition made me feel good.

I enjoyed everything: her art, books and film about her,

and most of all bright colors and those million dots.
























and last but not least 🙂

my ‘art’

just abstract ink and gouache strokes
