Statement

Juan Kasari (b. 1974) is a visual artist based in Helsinki. He has studied at the Institute of Design and Fine Arts in Lahti, Finland BA and MFA from Time and Space Arts from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki.

Kasari works with different media and his work has been exhibited at several exhibitions in Finland as well as other places in the world

He is known for his idiosyncratic eccentric pictorial language.

He moves between different media, from mixed media paintings to sound works through photography and video, sometimes fusing them all in a complete installations that creates illusion of certain separate world.

His style is quite hermatic and not often easily accesseble. His installations feature characters from stories of the artists own invention with hints of existing real personalitiess.

Juan Kasari´s art operates also on many levels of symbolic, literatual and material meaning, evoking for the viewer fragments of stories and dreams. Works are at the same time marked by a careful sense of composition and ironic wit.

He mixes facts and fictives in a interesting ways.
