The Top 100 - Timed Auction (24/80)


In Taru Happonen's paintings, organic forms from the untouched nature merge with human-built shapes creating an inseparable whole. Happonen has been playing with a thought about a creature that is visiting and seeing the Earth for the first time.

The artist’s paintings are a combination of abstract and figurative elements. When examined closer, one can see small details among the thick layers of oil paint. The paintings have been made using high-quality oil paints with vivid colours. 

Taru Happonen (b.1989) is a Finnish artist living and working in Helsinki. 


Education:  Currently finishing her MFA degree at the Academy of the Fine Arts Helsinki. 

Taru's work has been exhibited in several solo and group shows since 2010. Her next solo exhibition will be held at Gallery Forum Box in Helsinki 2022. 

Taru Happonen's works are included in HUS Collection (Helsinki University Hospital), Finnish Art Society (Art lottery 2020), and private collections.
