Great! :) I'll stop by to have a look :) Riipinen has this big wonderful book he edited himself with his past works, that he offered to his friends. Amazing indeed :) Riipinen is one of those few artists whose dimention and importance goes much beyond the finnish borders. Good works are universal! Good artists are international, and have a mind and spirit without borders too! :) A cheer to Riipinen's new rise! :) Fantastic news for the arts world, and for finnish arts too! Congratulations to Uusitalo for the braveness.
