Viljami Heinonen's (b.1986) dramatic works are filled with explicit violence and the threat of violence, desperation and situations of conflict. His works are kinds of painted collages, still images whose lushly tattered exteriors make them appear in places as if the fiercest battles had been fought out on their surface. His visual language and treatment of motifs contain numerous links with both the punk aesthetic and the tradition of post-war Informalism and Neorealism.
