My painting in Portrait Now! 2017

Portrait of Pentti Otto Koskinen, 2016, oil on canvas, 180 x 180 cm

My artwork has been selected for the Portrait Now! exhibition 2017. Out of 1058  nordic artworks, 77 have been selected  for the exhibition.


In 2017, The Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle hosts the portrait competition The Carlsberg Foundation’s Portrait Award. It is the sixth time, that the award will be presented to an artist who has given portraiture an artistic treatment of issues surrounding the identity and personas of real people, irrespective of whether that interpretation takes the form of a painting, a sculpture, a video, an installation or a work of sonic art.

The exhibition PORTRAIT NOW! 2017 will display a selection of the best portraits from the competition.


The exhibition is open from May 11 – July 30.
The Museum of National History

Starting 2.9 – 29.10 2017 the exhibit will be displayed at the Ljungbergmuseum in Sweden.
