I am Meri Mäntylä, a self-taught artist from Helsinki, Finland.
Visual art has always been my way of expressing myself but as I shifted my focus more on painting during the last couple of years, creating art has started to play a bigger role in my life, allowing me to develop my own, personal style.
My focus is on painting intuitively the color palette of my mind’s landscape. On the canvas the landscape gets sky-like shapes and harmonious color combinations with strong contrasts and from each painting, the viewer can sense the combination of my sensitive but playful nature.
It’s important to me to always get in touch with my mind when I create and through that, visualize my thoughts and feelings. This helps me to deal with my emotions and calm my mind. Therefore, the best thing I can wish a viewer can have through my art is a feeling of mental identification and calmness of mind.
