About my painting
In my paintings I am exploring the unknown nature. Spectacular aeonic vistas has emerged in them lately. They are like stories and sensations about timeless places in this mysterious universe. In my previous works I have found comprehensive and contemporary forms to express these sensations. My painting technic is instant, expressive, juizy and intense. Crossover between figurative, organic colour painting. Although I use colours very carefully and with extreme details.

"Artist"Mikko Juhani Kirjavainen´s painting is experimental and has strong colors. His approach to contemporary painting is juicy and has surprising elements. I have observed Mikko Kirjavainens artistic career since I was headmaster during his studies in Academy of Fine Art. His private exhibitions has shown continuum and rebirth of character. He has brought to our collection of materials many - sided mastery of paintings over transparent acrylic. His new discovery is tar and chalk expressions. Beside he is artist he is also performance artist, musician, lyric. A real multiartist. And plus he is also about to graduate as Innovation Consultant. The most significant character In his painting expressions is multi interpretative. His abstractions are organic and lyrical. Lyricism has been characteristic to all his art work from the beginning".
