Paavo Stenius, who previously practised his profession of nurse, is a self-learned painter.
The paintings can easily be approached and understood also by fine art newbies. Stenius does not intend to preach with his work, nor does he hide in-depth symbolic meanings in his art. The paintings look alike its creator: small or large, they bathe in the full spectre of colour. The topics range from expressionistic captures of the landscape all the way to higher spheres, up to space.
The materials of the paintings mainly consist of recycled materials. The frames oftentimes originate from excess wood provided by the Panda chocolate factory, located in Stenius’ neighbourhood in Jyväskylä. The works themselves are often created on plywood, rather than canvas, and some works are even framed with material developed from oil containers.
