The exhibition tells about Andreas Alariesto's own life with paintings and songs


Andreas Alariestos life consists of episodes during which good things and adversities alternated. The paths of life led him from the village of Riesto to Lokka, to the road construction site of Petsamo, to the shores of the Arctic Ocean to the English Legion of Muurmann with fatal consequences and, having reached adulthood, returned to the road construction site. The road builder became the caretaker of the Petsamo lying hotel for almost ten years, but the war broke all plans for the future. After the war, reconstruction began, both material and spiritual. Building his own house in Lokka, the wife of Riikka, who was found in Petsamo alongside her, and the work of a caretaker provided reliable support for life.
Alariesto has been making songs and paintings since the young boy, all of which tell of the past.
