Visual Artist

Tatu Tuominen (born 1975 in Helsinki) is a visual artist whose pieces mix painting, photography, and graphic arts. He works with issues of memory. Also his working process resembles the structure of the memory: something remembered changes when reminiscing, and a part of it is lost beyond recall. What remains are the imprints gilded with nostalgy, and the repressed – hidden between images and the memories.

Tatu Tuominen received his Master’s Degree from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 2006. Lately, his works have been on display at Kiasma Contemporary Art Museum, Helsinki; Mänttä Art Festival; Helsinki Art Museum Meilahti; the gallery Art + Shanghai, Shanghai; the Museum of Contemporary Art Shanghai; the Kluuvi Gallery of the Helsinki City Museum; the Pori Art Museum and the Finnish Institute in Stockholm.

Tuominen works with unordinary materials such as: cut paper, industrial resins and spray paint. The works are large scale wall paintings or elaborate paper cut-outs.
