About Helsinki

I had a solo exhibition in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, year 2005. It was at The Casa de Cultura Laura Alvin Museums' gallery, next to Ipanema Beach. In my exhibition room was a very large window viewing to the ocean. My theme was Helsinki and I wanted to paint and show in Brazil also one of the Finnish swimming paradises, the Swimming pool in Itäkeskus in Helsinki
....Time to time I come back to Helsinki -theme... and I am Missing Rio de Janeiro.
