RAFAEL WARDI
9.9.2023–28.1.2024 

Colour is at the heart of Rafael Wardi’s (1928–2021) art. The beloved artist’s colourful still lifes, often in shades of yellow, and his portraits of people and cities are very vivid at first sight. On closer inspection the dialogue between colour and light deepens into meanings – glimpses of emotions, stories and life themes.

Included in the exhibition are works from the artist's last years, which have never been shown to the public before. The selection of works underscores Wardi's long-standing artistic significance by presenting alongside new works key pieces from his career.

MUSEUM, ARCHITECTURE, SCULPTURE PARK

The Didrichsen Art Museum was born out of the love for art. The modern building was designed by architect Viljo Revell and it is located by the sea on Kuusisaari island in western Helsinki. The museum is surrounded by a sculpture park that is open for public during the museum's operating hours.
