Mervi Karhunen

I am a visual artist from Helsinki, Finland.

I work with colour, light and form, and my work deals above all with the experience of life – from the inner realm of the senses and feeling to the universal level of the human experience. The beauty of life as well as the wretchedness, the agony and the ecstacy, and that which lies beneath and beyond it all: the vastness that lays the foundation and creates depth and meaning to our existence.

My main techniques are oil colour, coloured ink and watercolour.
