About

Santeri Lehto graduated as a visual artist from the Lahti University of Applied Sciences’ Art Institute in 2013 and as a puppet designer from the School of Arts and Crafts in 2005. He has held many solo and group exhibitions, latest at DOJO in 2021 and TM Gallery in 2019. He took part in the Young Artist’ Exhibition at Kunsthalle Helsinki in 2011 and his works are found in numerous private collections. Next solo exhibitions coming up 2022.

Lehto uses a kind of minimalism, and carefully considered analytical naivety,as his stylistic means. First the viewer notices the childish nature of the works and a certain kind of visual simplicity, but the immersion in the symbolic space of the paintings reveals their completely different, almost paradoxical nature. The deconstruction of Lehto’s paintings reveals how visual simplicity underscores the extremely complex and endless question and mystery of existence. So maybe the most important thing in Lehto’s works is not what you see, but what you can’t see.
