Anonymous asked: your nude studies give me some egon schiele vibes.

i’m really happy about that, thank you! it’s a really sweet thing to say to me, because he’s my favourite artist and such an inspiration.

when will life become easier? when will it become light, fresh, soft and worth the wait? i’m not waiting for the shadows to disappear because everything that the light touches casts a shadow. i wait for the shadow and the light to be vivid, crisp on the edges, and that the grey that covers everything would melt away like an useless skin from the warmth of the sun.i dream of fitzgerald-like life, of winters in italy, of tender nights, of parties in the garden under tangerine-colored lanterns…

Anonymous asked: Have you ever been on painting course or something like that before you went to the academy of fine arts?

i’m not at the academy of fine arts ! god, i wish i was.  it’s my dream school, the helsinki academy of fine arts (the helsinki art university i think it’s called nowadays).
i have graduated from helsinki high school of visual arts and now i’m studying at hyvinkää art school. i also took art courses for a few years in my teens, outside of school. it was a hobby-like thing, once a week.

Anonymous asked: Perhaps you already know: Donna Tartt is going to visit Finland in May.

I DIDN’T !
that’s so cool. i still haven’t read goldfinch because i can’t decide wether to read it in finnish or in english, but this could be a good motivator.
