Tanja Aumanen, born 1967 in Jakobstad, Finland.

Mainly, I work with painting, and find my inspiration in the simple dilemmas of an ordinary day as well as in large issues of global character. My wish is to catch the interest of the audience, and through thoughts and impressions set the imagination in their minds in motion. There is very often a strike of sarkasm and humour in my works. Colours, forms and structures appeal to me and I often paint in many layers, where abstract surfaces meet human shapes and objects. I look for the unexpected meetings and work with my own sets of questions.

Beside the paintings I like to work with illustrations.

I also work together with artist blacksmith Peter Hedman, we unite metal and painting in common works. The last five years we have worked together with different themes for our exhibitions in galleries in both Helsinki and Stockholm. We have also made art for public places togehter, and we design products for gardens and interiors. We are always looking for new challenges.

Do take a look at our common homepage for further information and cv.
