Eero Alev

Eero Alev (b. 1983) is an Estonian painter whose works are mainly based on realistic material, but are twisted into the artist’s own key. Special attention has been paid to the mood. The works exude melancholy, longing, the passing of time. The color is often dark or pastel tones prevail. Motifs are space and man or man-made objects.
