Patient Emperor

Blog

Toipuva keisari (Eng. Patient Emperor) – below in right – has also been one of the most loved paintings of the Uhanalaiset/Endangered -exhibition. It’s based on the atmospheric painting Toipilas (Eng. The Convalescent) – below in left – by famous Finnish female artist Helene Schjerfbeck from 1888. Again one of my biggest art idols. As the name hints my endangered muse in the painting was the Emperor Tamarin who has the most showy mustache of the animal kingdom. Below more making of photographs and the finished painting. The size of the painting is 80x65cm and it’s painted with acrylics. The exhibition is open until the 14th of September in Karhulinne in the Korkeasaari Zoo in Helsinki. So only one week left.
