Vilen Künnapu

Sündinud / Born 1948

Vilen Künnapu who is known as an architect and artist presents predominantly large-scale acrylic paintings that have been created with a characteristic Künnapu-esque stylization and provocative use of colours. These are expressive works with a unique geometrical and symbolistic system that have consciously emphasized naivism, like a sign of the artist’s genuine and pure energy, happily spreading across the paintings. As for shapes, Künnapu utilizes the same problem-solving and work ethics as with architecture – bold colour schemes and a stylish eclecticism of various architectural elements. Egyptian pillars, palladium friezes, gothic-roman window verticals and arches that become amazingly similar in Künnapu’s interpretation. The architect as well as the artist has halted their origin, creating a new space of thought free from temporal restrictions. To walk within the rooms of Künnapu’s bright-coloured houses is as if to walk along the roofs, corridors, roads and landscapes on his paintings.
