Tuula Narhinen is one on our artists at Checkpoint Leonardo exhibition at Oulu Museum of Arts. She is visual artist based in Helsinki, Finland. "Images derived from scientific investigation are the core of Närhinen’s art, along with a dry sense of humor. She is an investigative artist, inventive and methodical. Her works are installations that consist of series of photographs, drawings or sculptures."
Tea Mäkipää, one of our artist at Checkpoint Leonardo exhibition at Oulu Museum of Arts. If you were to come across some of Tea Makipaa's work without realising it was art, it might well give you a shock. Sinking houses and burning cars are just some of the ways in which the Finnish-born artist confronts the prospect of impending ecological disaster.

Päivi Hintsanen; our artists at Checkpoint Leonardo. "In my art the atmosphere sets somewhere between reality and dream: real places are mixed with fictitious places and spaces, and the elements of reality glimpse in the imaginary world. I like to describe my images as a documentation of the places and characters I have met on my dreamy expeditions."
