Hannu Huhtamo is a visual artist focused on light art and visualisations. In his works, Huhtamo explores how light bends to represent different organic forms. Imaginary deep-sea creatures, minimalist animal figures and flowers from another reality, created with light painting technique, take the viewer to a new world where both Finnish nature and the forgotten areas of the city outskirts serve as the stage.
Hannu’s light drawings have gained a lot of attention in magazines, books, blogs and music videos as well as on international news channels like CNN, Discovery Channel, YLE and MTV3. He is also a member of Valopaja Light Art Collective that organizes light art workshops and live light painting performances.

“As a light painter one of my biggest challenges is to match the ambience light with the light painting tools that I use. The whole process might get tricky if the environment is not dark enough. Some of my designs have lots of details and the exposure time can vary from a couple of minutes to an hour.
After I switched to OM SYSTEM cameras and started using their Live Composite feature for longer exposures, these technical barriers got so much easier to handle.”
