I recently came across the colourful world of Jaako Mattila.

He is a Finnish painter who graduated from the Surrey Institute of Art and Design in 2001 and has since displayed his artwork in Finland, UK, France and Italy.

He is mainly influenced by the structures of nature and the constructive principles of the universe such as infinity, smallness, greatness and time.

I love the subtlety of some of his colourations, they strangely reminded me of a leaflet I picked up for a science festival in Manchester last year.

    I like how he uses seemingly simple elements like circles and lines and yet create something so complex and beautiful.

      Tis true Rusty and by keeping the shapes simplistic, it makes it easier for a wide audience to relate to them.
