The painter of the stars
A fresh, dynamic and exciting art. An art that has something of a postmodern rock’n’roll to it. Irony, rebellion and entertainment. A style far removed from the gloomy and tawny paintings that still adorn some Greco-Roman style walls today. That is René Mäkelä’s style.
He has spent years making large canvases with personal portraits of some of the most iconic characters of the last decades: activists, artists, politicians … and athletes.
Among his clients are Cam Newton, Austin Rivers and Griezman
