BIOGRAPHY

Aulis Harmaala is a visual artist. He is born in Ranua1966, and he lives in Helsinki, Finland. He graduated from Kankaanpää Art School 1994 and gained the master’s degree from Aalto University, Helsinki in 2011. His multidiscipline work involves several different ways to catch and handle material. The present works are installations in which sculptures, paintings, photographs, ready-made artifacts, and participatory elements form the core. In many of his works, the means of expression diverge directly into the instruments of conversation and communication. Harmaala considers that art is acts of inspecting, thinking, discussing, and influencing.

He has exhibited in several private and joint shows in Finnish galleries and museums since the beginning of 1990.
