ABOUT

Maiju Tirri is an internationally known Finnish artist. Northern roots combined with strong emotions are the essence of her rough but sensual art.

 

Maiju Tirri graduated as Bachelor of Arts in Finland. She has had various solo and group exhibitions in London UK, Gibraltar, Spain, Italy France, Monaco and Finland in the past 15 years. Her art  is held in private collections in Europe, Middle East and USA. 

 

Besides painting, Maiju does Graphic Art, Giclée reproductions,  Pop Art, Portraits and Glass Art. 

 

Maiju spends her winters in Marbella, Spain, where she gets inspired by the Mediterranean sea, fascinating Spanish atmosphere and the colourful nature. 

 

Finland still has a special place in her heart. The winters surrounded by snow and frozen sea, springtime with the brightest light, darkening hot summer nights and the autumns when colors of the forests explode are also often visible in her art work. 

 

“As an artist, my philosophy is to search and convey the harmony and goodness in my work. My essential mission is to give powerful positive experience through my art. My abstract expressionism paintings portray the world’s and life’s continuous movement and change, coming together as the present and the eternity. . “
