Jari’s father was a screen printer. Endless parade of new colors and surfaces was pouring out of the process. As a child, Jari could stare at these creations, each a unique new universe, for hours and hours. Today, his paintings reflect this hypnotic experience of childhood.
There is an ideological reason behind Jari’s abstract way of painting. Figurative art and familiar concepts within conceal the core of the emotional impact of an event. There are norms, rules, and values connected with recognizable objects. Therefore, Jari's mission is to portray the world as it is, under the surface of the apparent reality.

We're resetting 2018 and our featured artist run starting at the top with Thibault Monnier. Thibault is a versatile dancer and choreographer, one of the most exciting of his sort. Not only he stands out with his height, but also his fantastic movement language and presence on stage.
For me there is one word that describes Thibault and his work: INTRIGUING: Adjective - Causing a desire to know more; mysterious. Verb - To arouse the curiosity or interest of by unusual, new, or otherwise fascinating or compelling qualities; appeal strongly to; captivate. Synonymes - Fascinating, interesting, attractive
We have intruded Thibaults Youtube and Instagram to let you word battle the intriguing yourself. Read about Thibault also in the ASS-H blog post we wrote at October 2017 while visiting the dancer choreographer at the National Opera House in Helsinki.
