Anne Koskinen’s commissioned portrait of CEO Timo Viherkenttä Revelation – Timo Viherkenttä was revealed at The Finnish Cultural Foundation in Helsinki on 11 February 2019.
Koskinen’s Revelation portrait series is a nod toward traditions of artistic manifestos, as each piece moves through past, present, and future moments by containing emerging elements. In Viherkenttä’s portrait Koskinen employed old painting techniques and painted with gold and silver, which empahasize the effect of light and shadow. In this portrait there is also a hidden message that will reveal itself in time.
The portrait was commissioned by The Finnish Cultural Foundation of which Timo Viherkenttä was the chairman of the board from 2012 to 2014.
