Artist Jarmo Mäkilä is participating in the Nordic Noir exhibition at the Gallen-Kallela Museum. The exhibition is an encounter of six Finnish and Norwegian artists.
 

"The artists of this exhibition have in common myths, dream-like visions and images emerging from the subconscious along with a figurative manner of expression and technical skill."
 

Jarmo Mäkilä is known for his versatility and ability to evolve his artistic expression. He combines historical and contemporary elements, and often the starting point is autobiographical: the themes usually revolve around the journey from childhood to adulthood and the acceptance of the past.
