Jussi Heikkilä (born in 1952) is known for his conceptual sculptures and installations based on nature. He feels at home in the Finnish archipelago as well as with extreme experiences on high mountains. He transfers his experiences in nature into thoughts and colour notations, eventually moulding them into works of art.
In his works, Heikkilä takes a stand on the state of our planet, primarily the importance of birds as indicators of the state of the environment and the load on the oceans. Many of his works take their themes from birds and their movements – the spring, summer, autumn and winter migratory routes that repeat from one century to the next.
