JORMA HAUTALA is Finland’s leading classic names in colourist Concretism, carrying on the tradition of the Bauhaus and Russian Concretism in his art. Hautala makes us remember and to feel the truth and significance of the fact that art can contain inalienable values: the tensed balance of form, the reverberation of colour, beauty and wisdom.  

Jorma Hautala (b. 1941, Helsinki) was awarded the Pro Finlandia Medal in 1989 and the decoration of Commander of the Order of the Lion of Finland in 2001. His work is included in numerous prominent collections, including Library of Congress in Washington D.C., British Museum in London, The Brooklyn Museum in New York, Museum Albertina in Wien, Göteborgs Konstmuseum, Alvar Aalto Museum in Jyväskylä and Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki.  Hautala held the position of artist professor from 1995 to 2000 in the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts. He has created many commissioned public art works in Finland, and has won numerous prizes in mural painting and graphic competitions since 1973.
