Maiju Tirri, (1970) is a contemporary artist from Finland, living and working in Spain. She paints abstractions of experiences she absorbs and collects from the nature. The principal theme in her art is impressions of scenes from walks and journeys, and the paintings are stories of those experiences.
The wildness, mercilessness and, on the other hand, harmony of the nature meet the human senses in Tirri’s works. The relationship between man and nature are reflected in the large, rough, but at the same time sensual paintings. When immersed in the painting, the viewer can wander about both on the surface and beneath it and perhaps stumble on surprises along the way. You may feel the temptation to see beyond the rich layers of colour and structure and to look both to the past and to the future.
Maiju’s art is strongly 3 dimensional and some of them are almost like sculptures. She uses acrylic paints and mixed media in her works and her technique is absolutely unique and therefore also so interesting.
She has had various exhibitions around Europe. She has been invited to have her next solo exhibition in Gibraltar, by the Ministry of Culture.
