ABOUT Elli Maanpää – Painter

ELLI MAANPÄÄ – Vibrant Painter

I am Helsinki based visual artist Elli Maanpää (b.1985 Turku) empowered by colors. I paint nature and its creatures intertwined together. In my colourful figurative paintings I use six shades of acrylic paint.

I’ve had had solo shows in Finland and been part of group exhibitions in Finland and US. I was one of the six young artist chosen to HELENE20 -art project held by Helsinki Hospital. My portrait painting of Helene Schjerfbeck was auctioned by Hagelstam & Co 2020. I received M.A. in Visual Culture from Aalto University in 2013. I have also B.A. in Animation and in Fashion.

When I’m not painting I’m working on other creative pursuits. In 2020 I wrote and illustrated a children’s book Varis, joka halusi olla satakieli. I’ve also directed five short animations. I work in my atelier in Mechelininkatu 13 in Etu Töölö in Helsinki Finland.
