MIKA KARHU                                                                                            
BIOGRAPHY

b. 1969
lives and works in:
Sahanmäenkatu 19 C 11
05800 Hyvinkää

"It is much easier to look at other people or to think
about them than to touch them. Karhu wants to get
to grips with the shadowy domains of the anonymity,
formlessness and unrecognizability of sexuality. But
the world of his drawings is not the world of concepts
or ideas. It is the world that is lived and experienced,
the world of the body"
                                           
Otso Kantokorpi
