About Esko Juhani

I am a neo-shamanistic artist, whose visual language stems from subconsciousness, dreamworld, spirituality, meditation and cognition. Line, color and shape form a harmonic entirety; the canvas is fully utilised. The paintings themselves are meditational objects, which are meant to be contemplated.

By delving deep into a painting, a spectator may experience flashbacks from her childhood or previous lives. The counterforces of the universe are made visible through the vigilant artist. I am is not afraid of new challenges or alteration of self-awareness through animalistic experiences or meditational state.

I work in design.
