Reima Nevalainen at Art Berlin 2017
September 15–September 17, 2017
Galerie Forsblom is pleased to participate in Art Berlin 2017 with works by Reima Nevalainen (1984), who in his multi-layered collage technique combines paint with materials such as sand and paper, or scrapes away the paint to reveal contrasting surfaces underneath. Humans and nature serve as the subject matter of Nevalainen’s paintings – not as conflicting elements, however, for human figures and nature coexist as equals in his compositions.
Nevalainen graduated as a painter from the Kankaanpää Art Institute in 2008. He was chosen as Finland’s Young Artist of the Year in 2016. Nevalainen’s works are found in notable Finnish museums including the Helsinki Art Museum and the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art. The artist is based in Porvoo, Finland.
