With strong colours and a sense of surrealism in her work, Soile makes her paintings by using a palette knife. She uses paint in three ways. A thin, even coat, thick lines and by scraping lines into the painted area, for a three-dimensional look.

Soile Yli-Mäyry’s main theme in her work is humanity and the person’s alienation from nature in the urban world.

She recently held an art opening of selected works at B.NU gallery space in Singapore and the Finnish ambassador to Singapore, HE Ms Parviainen was present to grace the occasion.
