The Young Artist of the Year 2021 - Joel Slotte

Tampere Art Museum, Tampere

  • 12.6.2021–5.9.2021

Joel Slotte (b. 1987 Kokkola) is a painter who lives and works in Helsinki. Slotte paints technically masterful figurative oil paintings about everyday situations that are partly absurd and fictional.


His exhibition features figurative oil paintings based on restless fiction, everyday, lowly and festive anecdotes and indiscriminate sensuality. Slotte has exhibited his work in Finland, Sweden and Denmark. His works are included in the collections of Helsinki Art Museum, The Pro Artibus Foundation and The Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki.

"My paintings stem from everyday anecdotes, experiences and observations shared with friends things that are generally important to me in some way. I paint portraits of my friends, my loved ones and myself. I add fictional characteristics to real people and depict them as alternative versions of themselves. These alter egos are a way of facing the surrounding reality and its phenomena; sudden horror that is mixed with seemingly calm everyday life, various states between emotions as well as love and raw joy."
