Biography

Jyrki Riekki truly understands that art is poetry. His way is of the howling shaman, the fabulous buccaneer, the peasant bard and the traveling blues man. Riekki’s artworks are impeccable eruptions of what might be politely termed ‘harmonies of brutality’; what comes up is exactly what lies buried beneath – a scalding stew of our collective dreams and memories, our bone-doggiest passions and most horrific fears.The perfect blues riff, the faded ochre on a cave wall, the expert twist of a rusty knife – these will take us to the crossroads.
