Hello,

My name is Arto Kettunen. I’m an artist living and working in Helsinki, Finland.

I was born in 1987 in Lappeenranta, Finland. I studied painting in Saimaa University of Applied Sciences and graduated in 2016. I was also studying one autumn semester in St. Petersburg at the Academy of Fine Arts in 2014.

After graduation I have been living as a full time artist - painting commissioned portraits and having several gallery exhibitions mostly in Finland.
