Taneli Stenberg graduated as a painter in 2005. Stenberg describes the starting points of his works as sort of staging or setting a scenery. He has even stated that sometimes he feels like a theatre director when creating set-ups. Stenberg gets his inspiration from various things: from physical objects as well as the painting process itself. Stenberg mostly focuses on representational art.
Stenberg’s Kera artwork depicts Kera-kollektiivi’s summer intern Joel. Stenberg wanted to paint a mail figure instead of a female figure, which he usually depicts in his artwork. The painting is also inspired by Kera urban garden located at Keran Hallit. The piece spreads out to several walls and also merges with Anetta Lukjanovas artwork on the adjacent wall.
