Art Opening of Finnish artist Soile Yli-Mäyry in Singapore

Soile Yli-Mäyry of Finland has been a painter for more than three decades and has had over 300 solo exhibitions in 30 countries such as Japan, China, India, the United States and many countries in Europe.   With strong colours and a sense of surrealism in her work, Soile makes her paintings by using a palette knife. She uses paint in three ways: a thin, even coat, thick lines and by scraping lines into the painted area, for a three-dimensional look. Soile’s main theme in her work is humanity and the person’s alienation from nature in the urban world. She recently held an art opening of selected works at B.NU gallery space in Singapore and the Finnish ambassador to Singapore, HE Ms Parviainen was present to grace the occasion.

Or did I ever brand myself as a thought leader? -roll eyes- This blog will never be monetised–that is to say, I will never accept money for writing stuffs on this channel. Because “follow the money”– and forget it, my voice is not cheap. The point is that I feel very strongly with some things and I tend not to explain context because I don’t see the need to. Consequently people just anyhow interpret. It’s very tiring. Every time I …
