Istanbul is also the melting pot between Asia and Europe – the Orient and the Occident – and its diversified and rich history spanning over two thousand years is present in the whole city.

MATTI KUJASALO
30.09.2011 - 15.01.2012


Matti Kujasalo has said that the purpose of a painting is to raise questions and experiences in the viewer. One of the internationally best-known artists in Finland, Kujasalo has in the course of more than four decades systematically developed his thinking based on constructivist art. He has built a visual grammar with its own particular rules. It is at once sensitive and powerfully expressive, mercilessly logical and startlingly full of surprises.
