Timo Vaittinen

Timo Vaittinen (b. 1976) is known for his collage paintings, video animations and installations. The starting point for his works is generally a fictitious narrative. His imagery contains references to psychedelia and mysticism, and to the spirit world. Vaittinen is one of the founders of the SIC Gallery on Jätkäsaari Island in Helsinki, and a solo exhibition of his was shown there in 2015. In that same year, he took part in the Meditations and Spells group exhibition at Ytan in Västerås, Sweden, and in the Valtio+ (state) exhibition shown in the former provincial prison in Turku. His videoworks were, for instance, seen at the Moving Image Art Fair in New York in 2015, and at the Hors Pistes Festival in Paris in 2016. This coming summer, Vaittinen will be taking part in the Mänttä Art Festival.
