Born in Tyrnävä on the West Coast of Finland, Otso Kupiainen lives and works in Stockholm.

His career took off in France where he participated in group exhibitions in Caen and Bayeux in Normandy in the early 90's and his works was noticed for it's very unusual quality.

Each painting is the result of a long process of maturation, day-dreaming and listening to the world around. This will ultimately enrich the painting in progress either in a frenzied action or in a more reflective one. The result, stunning paintings surging from the artist's brushes splashed on the canvas like sentences extracted from a forgotten conversation.

The palette of colours used by Otso Kupiainen has a unique richness as it belongs to himself, strong and mellow at times, and the colours are rarely or never used to give a nice aspect. And there is wonder in the themes he goes through, the way he treats them and perhaps how they may resound in the spectator.

Otso Kupiainen is very good at investigating the mysteries of human nature and Nature itself and his sensibility pervades each of his paintings. Some are human figures, in full or in fragment in various attitudes, others are worlds in miniature, landscapes and blurred horizons, and remains of frescoes on the ruined walls to inspire our dreams.
