Riikka Lenkkeri lives and works in Mänttä. She graduated from the L’Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti in Genoa, Italy in 1995. Lenkkeri’s art shows her knowledge of European painting tradition. In her work, she often applies historical painting techniques and pictorial references to contemporary painting. Lenkkeri is especially known for her large realistic portraits, where strong brushwork and rich colours accentuate the physicality and presence of her subjects. Lenkkeri’s artistic career has spanned nearly 30 years, and her artworks have been acquired in several public collections.
