Joa Korhonen is known for a long and respected career as a musician and lead singer in his band SARA. Over the past 15 years Korhonen used songwriting as his main vessel to transfer and transmit emotions and emotional landscapes. Still everything could not be said. Becoming active as a painting artist was a natural channel for artistic expression. The actual facial expressions on Korhonen’s portraits are fairly stagnant and similar to each other, yet the emotional landscapes communicated by the paintings are vastly different from each other.
