To our sorrow, we must announce that our dear artist Esko Sihtola died on 15.8. 2017 after a severe illness.

Esko Sihtola´s gallery in Hanko is still open. Visitors are welcome, remember to book an appointment.


Althoug a skilled and sensitive graphic artist Esko Sihtola is better known as an oil-painter. His technical skill is also apparent in his paintings. The composition is elborate as is the colour effect. Without following any trends or covering claims of realism he paints naturalist landscapes. These are not, however, an escape from reality but pay hommage to threatened ways of life and environments - a reality worth protecting.
