ABOUT THE ARTIST

STATEMENT

Finnish artist Teppo Korte (born 1974) gets inspired of human and global themes like urbanization, identity, nature, human relations, silence, consumption, privacy, happiness etc.
Instead of making declarations, he wants to tell little personal stories and make notices. He often uses city landscapes as stages for his stories. Lights and shadows inspire him. “What do we want to show and what do we want to hide.”

He studied architecture and was a painter. Nowadays he combines both disciplines with resin, printed films, led-lights and spray paint. With this technique he aims to give transparent impressions of multi-layered reality. “I want to imagine what we could see underneath.”
