Tuukka Tammisaari shows nature’s and psyche’s macro-level details to magnified scales, capturing minutiae in dynamic geometrical brushstrokes. The rough surface texture in Tammisaari’s paintings mostly consist of multiple overlapping images and layers of paint. Varied in visual expression, the earthy palette and abstract forms open for poetic and playful interpretations while building on a modernistic tradition. Tammisaari is triggered by an intuitive flow and reason.
Tammisaari lives and works in Helsinki. He holds a BFA from Lahti University of Applied Sciences and he is currently writing his MFA thesis at The Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki.
In 2016 he had his debut exhibition at Galerie Forsblom in Helsinki, followed by exhibitions in Stockholm and New York. In May 2017 he participated in the exhibition “Looking Forward” at Galerie Torbandena Projects in Trieste, Italy, a curated presentation of 8 talented international artists born after 1980.
