Johannes Nevala An artistry with birds in focus. In oil, watercolors and graphics Johannes Nevala creates images with inspiration from the Gotlandic seashores. Since 1992 living and working on the Baltic Island of Gotland, Sweden. "My artistry is a reflection in images of a shore where birds land, breed and leave impression. I try to arouse associations to these places in a way that can be interpreted as real or fictious, often with the light as the central part in the experiences. Paintings that mixes the expression from the seashore with inner experiences, where the technique and the feeling from the painting doesn’t have to be reproduced or strictly faithful to the model - bird in the environment"
Biography: Biography of Johannes Nevala Bird Painter, born in 1966 in Finland. Since 1992, living and working on the Baltic Island of Gotland, Sweden, where the shores are rich in birds and offer unique motifs and inspiration. His artistry started during bird-observations with notes and simple sketches of shapes, colours and behaviour. Pretty soon, his interest changed to painting and after a few years of work Johannes Nevala had his first separate exhibition in 1993.
