Ilari Hautamäki (b. 1983) is a Helsinki based visual artist. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, in 2011 and has since shown actively in solo and group exhibitions. In his semi-abstract paintings he combines organic and industrial elements. He starts his work with a fast and intuitive act which follows up a careful and planed painting process. In the end, the foundation of his work is the basic elements of painting: colours, shapes and rhythm.
”For me, beauty means balance, brightness and harmony. It can also be something momentary and transient, like a flowering tree or morning glow.” – Ilari Hautamäki, 2020.
