Paul Osipow

Kunsthalle Helsinki 26.1.–24.3.2019

The Paul Osipow retrospective presents an impressive cross-section of works by one of Finland’s leading painters. Osipow’s early travels in Europe and the United States have had a lasting impact on his art, and throughout his career he has drawn inspiration from various periods in art history, ranging from modernism all the way back to Classical Antiquity. The Kunsthalle retrospective features Osipow’s geometrical and free-form abstract paintings as well as his still life compositions, female figures and other figurative classic motifs spanning from the 1960s to the present day.
