PÄIVYT NIEMELÄINEN CV

 

Päivyt Niemeläinen's Biography

Päivyt Niemeläinen is a Finnish visual artist from Helsinki specializing in textiles and paintings. She was born in North Carelia, the Eastern-Middle part of Finland. In the seventies, she has graduated from the University of Helsinki as a Master of Arts. She has chosen oil paintings as her main field since 1993. Also she paints aquarelles, as well as in the pre-historical way pictures using blood water and pure pigments.

Päivyt Niemeläinen has developed a unique technique for Relief-Paintings in which she uses a combination of plastic forms and oil paintings. She finds motives from nature and from human's life.

Summer nights in Finland, the glow of the sun, waves, gusts of wind, ice, lights and shadows are pictured in her works.

As an artist, she has images of secret gardens. These paintings depict human life, which comes from somewhere and exists for a short time, then disappears into the eternal flow of time.

In Finland you can find her paintings in several public collections.

In private collections many of her paintings exist in Finland, Germany, Austria, Portugal, France, Egypt and USA.
