Reidar Särestöniemi (1925-1981) is one of the best known Finnish artists and he was the most remarkable Lappish artist of his time. The local nature affected him deeply and gave his art its content and strength. Peatlands and fells, grouse, lynx, rams and reindeer are frequent motifs in his works. The countryside gave him not only motifs, but perhaps the most notable element in his art, the strong colours. He was a colourful character who in his time prompted plenty of public discussion of his art and personality. Reidar Särestöniemi’s art is well-known from his unique relief-like techinque, several layers of paint and strong, intensive colours.

Reidar has said that in his paintings there is his happiness, his pain, his unfulfilled longing, his whole life. Often an animal figure symbolised the person of the artist himself. The willow grouse represented the vulnerable side of the artist, whereas the embracing bears and seals symbolised love.
