Antti Nurmesniemi (1939-2001) was a Finnish artist who is widely credited with being one of the most influential figures in the development of contemporary art in Finland. He studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki, and went on to become a professor at the same institution. His art is generally divided into three main categories: abstract painting, figurative painting and works of sculpture. His work is often characterized by the use of bold colour and texture. Among his most important works are the large-scale abstract paintings, Being in the Garden (1966), Landscape with Stones (1977) and the sculpture The Traveller (1988).
