Ch-ch-ch-changes
I have a new e-mail address, finally: aino(at)ainolouhi.com. I do receive the mail from my old address as well but please use this one from now on! I try to update it soon for my CONTACT -page.

I also have a new studio, Nakki ja kukka, together with artist Hanna-Riikka Heikkilä. We have a tiny showroom of our paintings and other things there so if you ever want to come and see, you can contact me from the e-mail above. The studio is situated in Pyynikki, and it's a very good reason to pay a visit to this l o v e l y town of Tampere.

Eppu Nuotio and Aino Louhi: Tämä vai Tuo? Viljan syntymäpäivät (2014)

 

Suddenly and finally
our book just came out. I made an illustration to Eppu Nuotio's script for Tämä vai Tuo? Viljan syntymäpäivät already last summer/fall, but only now it is on sale at the online shop Elisa Kirja as an audio e-book. This book was made in four months with a budget of one month and it has no marketing budget nor plan whatsoever. If you want to support this project and its makers (or just read good, from the heart -picture book for your children), please go to the shop! The book is so far only in Finnish.

 
 
 

I made the pictures by hand; drawing with pencil, cutting different patterned papers and coloring with gouache.

 
 
 
 

Flower shop -picture is one of my own favorites!

My poster in Frezza competition

 

Help me
..to win the Frezza -poster competition! All you need to do is go to Frezza's page and facebook-like my poster.

And you can make your own poster and compete, too.

Window of Luottovaate, "a fashion library"

 

This...
Luottovaate is a Tamperean organisation which lends its members high quality, fashionable clothes and accessories mostly from small Finnish brands. They asked me to make a piece for their window and of course I couldn't resist the idea! I decorated the window with Molotow paint markers and stickers cut from coloured sticker papers. If you are interested in getting a membership card for Luottovaate, check out their Facebook page and come to see the selection on every other Thursday in Itsenäisyydenkatu 23 (in the corner of Salhojankatu, let my window painting lead you to the right door!)

 
 
 

Aino Louhi <3 Design Boulevard, for sure

 

..and that
I also have a little exhibition in my favorite design boutique, Design Boulevard (Hatanpään valtatie 6, Tampere), on 14.2.-12.4.2014. This is a place run by my friend Karita and we've planned some kind of collaboration for a long time. So finally, it is an honor to have my work presented in Design Boulevard.

Lumikon metsä (2013) can be seen in Ravintola 931, Tampere, during December

 

Back in Tampere, back in business
This week-end I had an opening at one of my favorite places in Tampere: Ravintola 931. This culture-friendly bar is in the middle of the city, surrounded by the waters of Tammerkoski. Besides a great view, good music (usually played by the good ol' Technics) and a cup of locally roasted coffee, you can now enjoy my paintings on the wall for the rest of what is left of 2013. Almost all of the works are done during November, and so the show is called November Child. Go to ART to see some updates!

 
 
  My exhibition "Pile of Shimmer and Shine" in Galerie Laterne in Chenmnitz, Germany  

Chemnitz in mind
I had an amazing October in Germany and before I'll get to update these works to ART-page (when they actually get back to me), here's a sneak peek of my exhibition Pile of Shimmer and Shine in Galerie Laterne and a piece called "The Wall Smells Clean". As you can see, the illustrational style was still very much coming out of my hand after the book project and the end result was a surprise to myself and a very exciting turn since I haven't painted portraits for so long.

Children's book in the making!

 

Auf Wiedersehen!
Just two weeks ago I finished quite a long illustration project: an electronic children's book written by Eppu Nuotio. The book will be published by Elisa Kirja, hopefully already in October. This project has been such an eye opener for me, of what I want to do and what I am good at –I really hope all the devotion shows in the pages of Tämä vai tuo. I'll be informing about the release as soon as I know more about it!

 
 
 

There was nothing electronic about illustrating this book


October I'll be spending in Germany. Tampere's twin town Chemnitz kindly invited me to an artist residence there. Lots of work and some more work coming up as I'm having an exhibition there in four weeks!

Lempeällä otteella (2013) on the wall of an old abbatoir

 

Anonymous Artist Presented
I had a secret exhibition in June-July in the gallery Unknown Cargo in Teurastamo area, Helsinki. Unknown cargo's idea is to reveal the artist only after the exhibition in a closing party. This idea worked for me really well –I felt I had a lot less pressure while working and I felt comfortable to do plain painting show for the first time. I also completely fell in love with the gallery space (an old sauna/shower space of the abbatoir); rough brick walls, worn out paint and beautiful tiles on the floor. I could almost hear the paintings and the space discussing together!

 
 
 

Unknown Cargo


Of course it's a shame I couldn't really promote the exhibition anywhere, but fortunately it still managed to get some attention! Here are links to a small review and a radio interview, which was made on the day of the closing party.

I've been working on my first big illustration job (more about that later), painting (more about that later) and started two blogs. More about the other one later, but here's the link to my TUMBLR, that I try to have as my sketch bookish. No recent updates, MORE ABOUT LATER!!

Some painting process going on

 

Naturally yours
I had forgotten to update some exhibition photos from last summer to ART. The artwork in Haihatus summer show was unfortunately mostly destroyed by birds and spiders during the summer. Not cool!

Constellation (2012) on porcelain plate

 

November, my favourite
time of the year. After gardening the whole summer (check out ART), I decided to dedicate this Fall to comic art and illustration. And what do you know, of course I started to feel like painting some as well. At the moment I'm in a state where I'm doing and doing and nothing ever seems to get me anywhere. I'll let you know when it does.

Bold sculpture and paintings by such contemporary hotties as Jasmin Anoschkin, Paavo Halonen, Eeva-Leena Eklund, Maria Stereo, Krister Gråhn and some ITE-dudes like Viljo Luokkanen and Aune Kinnunen, whose bear made out of pine cones visits my Forest Garden. Go to Salo!

ps. A special thanks to my uncle Ilkka Louhi who gave me some material for trees. Forever grateful poor artist!

Sneak peek from Haihatus Summer Exhibition "Ei millään pahalla"

 

Summing up the Summer ahead
Haihatus Summer Exhibition opens for audience next Sunday the 10th of June in Joutsa, Finland. My piece of work can be seen in an old sports commentator's booth dragged in to the Haihatus yard.

Taidelaitos Haihatus (Jousitie 68-70, Joutsa) open 10th of June- 19th of August every day 11am-6pm. Tickets for adults 8€.

 
 
 

The wildest place for an installation, in my opinion.

 

Cabinet on Art
I've updated the Art Cabinet pictures to ART-section. The quality of the pictures is a disappointment to myself, but I hope You'll get the idea and add some brightness to the colours.

And if You're interested in buying the Cabinet, go to the lovely Paloni-store in Eerikinkatu 7, Helsinki.

I'm a poster girl
I had the nicest illustration job for my good friend Riikka's shop RK Design. Go on and shop 'til you drop it like it's hot. The ABC posters are in three different color options.

And also a little Reminder that The Mysterious Cabinet Project is over and the piece of art itself will be introduced to the audience in Recycling Factory -event in Helsinki on May 5th to 6th. I'll be there part of the day on Saturday, come and tell me a tale!

7.3.2012
 
Upcoming and ongoing
I've left the computer at home and sat tightly at the studio for a few months now. Here's some upcoming events I'll be part of.

Recycling Factory
Kierrätystehdas, Recycling Factory, will take place in Cable Factory, Helsinki, in the beginning of May 2012. I'm painting an old cabinet for the design concept store Paloni (Eerikinkatu 7, Helsinki). This cabinet can be seen for the first time in Recycling Factory. I'll be reporting the painting process in Paloni's blog couple of times during these two months.

Haihatus
I'm one of the artists of Haihatus summer exhibition in Joutsa. The exhibition opens on June 10th 2012 and goes on til 19th of August. I'm super excited about the space where I get to exhibit my work! Let it be a secret for a little while.

Men of the Forest
I will build a garden installation to the exhibition Metsien miehet, Men of the Forest, in the Art Museum of Salo. The show will open on 22nd of September, 2012. More info later on!

Someone's watching

 

"I've got this Linna-situation"
Dear folks, I'm having an exhibition opening Friday the 1st of April! Gallery Tilanne is quite a new place in my neighborhood here in Manse and I'm super-happy to be one of the first artists to exhibit work there.

My press release is again only in Finnish, voilà:

Linna-Tilanne
Valkoisen huoneen haltuunotto antaa joka kerta huimaavan vallan tunteen. Mitä tällä kertaa tekisin? Miten muokkaan tilasta omani? Saako seinät maalata? Ja patterin... Entä jos tila ei olekaan valkoinen huone, vaan paikka jossa on jo valmis tunnelma, värikkäitä kirppistuoleja ja limsakaappi? Silmänkääntötemppua odotellessa!

Paikan päällä tehtävät installaatiot ovat vasta ajatuksia päässäni, muotoa muuttavia möykkyjä ja väriläiskiä. Teen työhuoneella rakennuspalikoita maalauksista, tarroista, vanhoista lampunvarjostimista ja ajatuksista päässäni. Kaikki tuntuu ensin epämääräiseltä ja häilyvältä ja sitten jännittävältä ja hauskalta. Yksi asia on kuitenkin varma: huhtikuussa Tilanne on linnani.

Aino Louhen näyttely Tilanne-Galleriassa 1.-21.4.2011. Auki ma-la klo 10-18/ Open on mon-tue 10-18.

Oh yeah and party hats on on the first of April 18--->! Cake, music and castles at the gallery.

This tornado loves you
My exhibition in Gallery Alkovi, Helsinki, opens on the 6th of October and goes on 'til 31st of October, 2010. It's a window gallery, so you can check it out any time of the day in Helsinginkatu 19. Any questions about the space to alkovigalleria(at)gmail.com and about the show to me, aino(at)kaino-kustanne.com. Here's the press release, in Finnish only!

Aino Louhi: Hasardimaantiede
Hasardimaantiede oli lempikurssini lukiossa. Neljännen kerroksen hapettomassa luokkahuoneessa, paksujen verhojen pölyntuoksussa, uurteiseen pulpetinkanteen nojaten oli turvallista kuulla ihmistä suuremmasta tuhovoimasta. Pelko oli abstraktia ja jännittävää, kärsimykset kaukaisia ja epätodellisia.

On mahdotonta edes yrittää toistaa sitä tuhoa, mitä luonto voi saada aikaan. Siksi oma maantiedon oppituntini on leikkisä ja kaunis; purkaukset ovat onnellisia roiskeita seinillä, vuoret pieniä ja vyöryt pehmeitä. Tornado on pysähtynyt huokaisemaan vihaisella matkallaan kylästä toiseen.

Aino Louhi (s.1981) on tamperelainen kuvataiteilija, joka kävi lukionsa Torkkelinmäellä. Hän palaa tuttuihin maisemiin ja koulumuistoihin ensimmäisellä Helsingin-näyttelyllään Hasardimaantiede Galleria Alkovissa 7.-31.10.2010. Avajaiset keskiviikkona 6.10.2010 klo 16-18 Tervetuloa!  

Virtual Comic Sensation
During my vacation from updating any websites, somebody else did their job and put up a great virtual exhibition of Finnish comic artists. Visit Culture Gallery to explore comic among other arty parts of Finland.

..And a Really Nice Link!

A Spot Quickie in a Czech Train, August 2010

 

I'm Having a Ball!
So many things going on that it's hard to even think about updating this site.. let's try anyways! And let's use the good old en dash!

-Last month I spent two weeks in Czech Republic, taking part in an exhibition/workshop called Planting Ideas Symposium. Symposium took place in D.I.V.O. Institute, Kolín and there were artists from England, Australia, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Finland.. I made two pieces that you can check out in ART.

 
 

-My paper cut -work My Melancholy Piano (originally from the book Kivakurja, 2006) can be seen in a tamperean street art project "Taidetta jakokaapeissa" in the crossing of Verkatehtaankatu and Hatanpään Valtatie. It will be there for a whole year!

-My painting No on siin jotain sateenkaari ja tulivuorii/ Some Rainbows and Volcanoes (2010) (you can see it on below) is exhibited at this very moment in Järvenpää-talo, Järvenpää, in a group show called "Meistä tuli maalareita, valokuvaajia, graafikoita..." It's an 30th anniversary show for the Järvenpää Children's Art School. My first art school! The exhibition is on 'til September 22nd, 6pm. (however, it's closed on the w/e 11th-12th, don't go then!)

-Helsinki Comics Festival is on the 10th-12th of September, and Kaino-Kustanne is gonna be there in Small Press Heaven (Luckan, Simonkatu 8) with bagful of new stuff! Kuvatus3 is still quite fresh-tasting, but we decided to put out a zine called Kadonneet helmet (freely translated "Lost jewels"). Also some tiny comics from Kaija, and cool new bags! Be there, Sat-Sun 12-18!

-My solo exhibition, and a first ever Helsinki show is on in October in Gallery Alkovi (Helsinginkatu 19). More details about that SOON!

12.3.2010
 
 
 
 

Still untitled and in progress (2010)

 

Silent but moving
I thought I should make a note here -I'm still around, but concentrating on painting new, and there's not much to talk about. I will be active in the exhibition field next fall and before that me and Kaija Papu will publish new Kuvatus3 -comic and take it and all the others to the Summer exhibition of Purnu. We are also taking part of an interesting symposium abroad in the summer, exciting... More about that a bit later!

GEOMAGIKA: Valosaari/ GEOMAGIKA: The World Begins in a Dark Class Room (2009)

 

Updating Art and Cutting Out Space
If you live too far away from Tampere to visit just for art's sake, you can have a little quickie in my own private gallery in ART. I just put there some pics of my most recent work Valosaari, not to mention me and Kaija Papu's summer romance with knitty Pitsihilli.

At the moment I'm working on a group exhibition in Lastenkulttuurikeskus Rulla (Children's Culture Centre) here in Tampere. The theme of this show is Space and I will be cutting my universe out from sticker paper. The exhibition opens on the 8th of December 2009 and is open 'til the beginning of next year.
21.9.2009
 
Sesam opening!
I've had some nerve-wrecking yet exciting weeks with preparing and building up my installation "GEOMAGIKA: Valosaari" (which I decided to translate not so literally to "The World Begins in a Dark Class Room") for The Fourth Pirkanmaa Triennial in Art Museum of Tampere. Finally my work is done and you can go and check it out! Knitting team Louhi/Papu also had time to put up a little installation in front of the Museum. Besides the Museum, Triennial is spreading around Tampere from MEDIAtunnel all the way to Pispala Contemporary Art Center.

I Forgot to Recycle!
I've had so many things going on that I forgot to inform everybody about an exhibition Kierrätystä ("Recycled") in the Art Museum of Riihimäki, Finland. Kaija Papu and I recycled Woolly Panties of One-legged Queen into a light pole in Riihimäki as part of this fine show. It's on from 11th of September 'til 29th of November, 2009.

Sense of Reality....what’s that!?!?
Taju09 –Todellisuuden taju
is the summer show of Hyvinkää's Artist Association and Art Museum in Hyvinkää, and it’s curated by artist Teemu Mäki who was sensible enough to invite me and Kaija Papu to knit something awesome for the exhibition. We’ve had our twosome sweatshop for the past month and after square metres of hard work we’ll be ready to exhibit our piece among others, starting from 11th of June 2009 when the opening takes place in the centre of Hyvinkää. More about Taju09 and our artwork in www.todellisuudentaju.com.

Oh yeah, and a million thank’s to Nordia Produkter, HITOMI and all the people who donated a great deal of beautiful, colorful yarn for us!

Knitters United
You can read about me and Kaija Papu and our knit-o-mania in the June issue of Voima magazine. Thank’s to Jari Tamminen for the enthusiastic interview and Klaus Welp for the amazingly fun photoshoot in the sea of yarn, and ice creams, yummm..

As you can learn from Voima, I'm coming to Pax Festival in Alppipuisto, Helsinki in the end of June and gather people to work on some beautiful knit tags for the urban surroundings. If you are intrested in participating, just show up in the park in 27th-28th of June 09. However, it’d be nice to know that someone is coming, so if you’re up for it, contact me at aino(at)kaino-kustanne.com. If you have no idea how to knit, I’ll teach you, and if you still don't know how, you can always make pom poms for my installation Pom Pom Puu.

Triumph of Art
Finally I'm allowed to reveal a secret! I was invited to the 4th Triennale of Pirkanmaa, which means I’ll be exhibiting my GEOMAGIKA in Tampere Art Museum in the fall 09. Other artists in the Triennale include Kaija Papu, Sami Sänpäkkilä, Sanni Seppä, Henrietta Lehtonen, Minna Suoniemi, Kati Roover, Tomas Regan, Jan Anderzén, Antti Pussinen, Jarno Vesala, Fanni Niemi-Junkola and Krister Gråhn, just to name a few, so I know it’s gonna be one gorgeous bash of art!

 
23.2.2009
 
Lovely!
Me
and Kaija Papu were awarded by the Foundation of Environmental Art of Finland, who chose our  “Happiest Tree in the World” as Environmental Artwork of  the year 2008 together with Helen Evans’ and Heiko Hansen’s “Green Cloud”. We are very proud of this honour and thank the Foundation of Environmental Art for the nice event and kind words!

Hot town
summer in  Hyvinkää! Me and Kaija Papu were also invited to xzibit our art in  Art Museum of Hyvinkää for their summer exhibition TAJU2009. Coolio!

One-legged Queen
is showing her long-johns in Gallery Huoltamo's 3-year-anniversary exhibition MEGALOMANIA. WHOOT!!? It's me and Kaija's beautiful knit graffiti of course. Go check it out in Suvantokatu 4, Tampere. The exhibition goes on 'til 22nd of March, but maybe queen won't take her panties off so soon...

 
 
 

...I would like to thank
all the people who visited “Planetaario” in Studio Mältinranta, all the critique and analysis, Mältinranta staff, Kaija, Eino, and most of all, all the sweethearts who lent their planets for the exhibition. The show’s over for now, but let’s not be sad! Another one is on its way!
