Hi!

You just entered into portfolio of visual artist and art educator Timo Tähkänen based in Finland, Helsinki.

Colour, material and interaction are intertwined in my artworks and perfomances. My artistic practice is driven by questions about social connections as a material of visual art, boundaries of work of art in time and space and relationship between listening and fixing the world.

Selected artworks and projects since 2013. Colour, material, social connection and interaction are often intertwined in my installations, performances, paintings and other art works.

As a medium, the body becomes a tool for examining myself and my subject matter. In photo performances where there is no live audience, I am free to experiment and alter the approach. A simple gesture can reveal deeper meanings and levels.

Timo of Finland – drawing project is inspired by writings on the puplic walls, toilet writings, graffitis, children´s drawings, comics and finnish embroidered wall hangings.
