About Ville Andersson
Ville Andersson was born in 1968 in Loviisa (Finland). He currently lives and works in Helsinki (Finland).
Ville Andersson is a versatile artist, both in his use of different media and in his variety of styles. The starting points for his works can be found in a variety of sources, ranging from popular culture to art history. He is best known for his photographs that are often staged, dramatized situations, with actors or dancers as his models. Sometimes, Andersson uses light in a manner that makes the photographs look like oil paintings. In his recent work he has dealt with the concept of empty spaces as a part of visual expression and with the experience of the colour white and its connotations of silence.
Ville Andersson is represented by Helsinki Contemporary.
