Pekka Vesterinen

Pekka Vesterinen studied at the Savonlinna Art School and the School of the Academy of Fine Arts. He has been widely shown over the last 20 years in Norway, Finland, Italy, Nepal, Germany, and Austria. Pekka's use of rich, vibrant colors within a square frame evoke a sense of movement. His brush strokes remind one of fast motion captured in a photograph. Pekka's work is full of light, communicating a sense of optimism and tranquility.
