Eemil Karila (1978), currently based in Berlin.
" I work in various mediums in my art and the subject usually defines the technique of the work. Art means for me mostly learning. Through creation I learn techniques and ways to express myself, but also discipline and philosophy of life, that many times humiliates me in front of the canvas called life."
