The work of Mikko Paakkola is a must see for anybody who enjoys pure paintings. The intense colors are constructed in pigments to show a landscape which forms a panorama of absolute silence. The rude character brings up the Nordic light, the mysterious atmosphere of the midnight sun, but also the unique character of the flat Belgian landscape - the landscape which has strongly influenced the painter.
Mikko Paakkola (*1961) graduated from Turku School of Fine Arts (1981-85) and completed his postgraduate studies in Paris, l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (1988-90). He lived in Brussels from 1996 to 2006. In the 2000s Paakkola’s work has been exhibited in many European galleries, in Belgium, Sweden, Holland, France and Germany.

BOOK A PRIVATE VIEW IN OUR ART GALLERY
A Private View is an opportunity to give you an early chance to the view (new) works, often before the opening of an exhibition.
Apart from these occasions, there are also opportunities to see the works on display in a Public View, which means that during opening hours, every first weekend of the month, you can drop in and find out if there are works of art that you find interesting.
We look forward to seeing you in our art gallery.
