Janne Räisänen is a painter who constantly shifts between canvas and paper. This movement is reflected in the ways in which the work is displayed, either in classical settings or in messier, cooler installations. His drawings and paintings show and comment on the daily lives of human beings in warm-hearted, humorous and, not to forget, weird ways. In his most recent works, the glint in Räisänen's eye is also directed at himself. As a visual artist Räisänen is the very ur-image of the singer-songwriter, producing little big stories that, in a pleasant and beneficial way, leave us confused, but never cold.
