Art exhibition

The Syrian artist Jan Jwam Kurimi has been interested in mythology since his childhood. He has painted pictures based on the mythology that he has read. As an artist based in Finland for the last twenty years, he has found fresh inspiration from the Kalevala, which he came in contact with in Syria (in Arabic).

His exhibition is especially relavant today, as it opens up and demonstrates Finnish culture in a way that refugees will be able to relate with, while at the same time giving an insight to Finns about Syrian culture and way of life.
