Daniel Hahta

Art Studio: Into Art Centre

Daniel Hahta is an artist from Turku, whose expression combines precision and fantasy. In recent years, the subjects of his works have been related to the neighborhood of Itäharju where he lives. In Hahta’s works, Itäharju appears as an undeveloped open landscape, steep rolling terrains, where small details stop the gaze. As a technique, he uses a liquid calligraphy marker, mostly using a wooden stick and a thin brush as his marker.
