Born 1963 in Helsinki, Finland. Lives in Porvoo. After trying a variety of painting techniques, Petri Hytönen has worked mainly in watercolours since 1993. He finds the starting-point and motifs for his large, imaginative watercolours in his immediate surroundings, something which is reflected in the narrative titles. Popular culture in general, and music in particular, are essential to his work. Petri Hytönen received the third prize in Carnegie Art Award 2000.
