Galleria Heino (FI)

Alvar Gullichsen

Galleria Heino is a Finnish contemporary art gallery founded in 2002 in the centre of Helsinki. The gallery shows art in different media – painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, installation and moving image work.


Alvar Gullichsen (b.1961) is an established  Finnish mid-career painter and sculptor. Gullichsen’s new paintings are concerned with transcultural visual pattern imagery. They are advanced, highly personal explorations of geometric language closely related to his inquiries into shamanistic, transcendental experiences and traditions with the intention to create a timeless and universal visual language.
