Antti Rytkönen art bio
I am an art painter born in 1988. Visual arts have been my hobby since childhood. I studied art in Pekka Halonen academy in 2014 till 2015.
I like to travel in the big cities. Their atmosphere and hectic environment fascinates me. During my trips I walk around looking at the environment trying to capture interesting ambiance, reflections and lights. At home I select takes that I find interesting to paint. I keep the reference photo on my laptop screen for making observations while I paint. I do not use projection, carbon paper nor gridding. Painting by a free hand will leave mistakes in my paintings, but if they do not disrupt I consider them as a welcome hand print.
