Jussi Goman (b. 1980) is a visual artist born in Pudasjärvi, who lives and works in Riihimäki. He gratuated as a Master of Fine Arts from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 2008. Goman is known for his colorful acrylic paintings executed with broad brushstrokes, combining humor, movement, and lightness. The painterly elements of his works and the surprising visual narratives together create a rich and multi-layered ensemble. Goman's oeuvre also reveals a profound interest in art history, which is evident in his ability to reinterpret and playfully break the conventions of painting. Recently, Goman has expanded his expression to ceramic sculptures, bringing the world of his paintings into a new dimension. Jussi Goman has organized numerous solo exhibitions and participated in many group and joint exhibitions both in Finland and internationally. His works are included in several significant collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, the Saastamoinen Foundation Collection, and the HAM Helsinki Art Museum. In 2020, Goman was awarded the William Thuring Main Prize by the Finnish Art Society.
