Janne Räisänen


Janne Räisänen (born 1971) is a sensitively rough
and ready, laid-back pedantic painter whose
themes come from popular culture, politics,
erotica, phenomenology and the pinnacles of art history alike.

The scale of his works can range from a small
note to a nine-metre diary watercolour or from a
pocket-sized painting to a three-metre panorama of the throbbing city night.

When considering Janne Räisänen’s paintings, one
cannot see behind the corner. A surprise will no
doubt be waiting there. These works combine in a
strange way momentariness – the moments of
experience and  painting – with permanence – the
enduring nature of the uttered word, the painted line.

In addition to the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts,
Janne Räisänen has studied at the Städelschule in
Frankfurt, Germany. In 1999, he was elected Young
Artist of the Year, together with Janne Kaitala
and Jukka Korkeila. He has also been rector of
the Free Art School in Helsinki.
