Jaakko Leppänen (1924-1982)

Jaakko Leppänen, painter in Kainuu, Finland.

Jaakko Leppänen - roofs in Sotkamo and Vuokatti Mountain - charcoal and oil paint on paper - 60x51cm - 1966.

Jaakko Leppänen moved to Sotkamo in the Kainuu province of Finland in the 1950's. He painted people and landscapes in the Sotkamo area. There are no prevailing styles in his work, which ranges from cubism, naivism and expressionism to realism. Nor is there a chronological order in styles. Between 1950 and 1970 Leppänen produced his best works. During this period, in the sixties, he taught art in junior high school and use the art materials there, like wood glue to ground his canvases, markers, lacquers and various oil paints, to work with and developed a personal style. He was passionate about art, but alcohol made him lose control. In need of money he sold his oeuvre irrespective of the varying quality.
