In order to spend more time with his family, Kai Saarto (b. 1974) traded his successful career in journalism for the uncertain income of an artist. He paints exclusively on digital oils, with results that are virtually impossible to tell from a real oil paintings.
Most of his artistic work is privately commissioned portraits, but he also has an ever expanding portfolio of prints. These are from various subjects, including street scenes, landscapes, military equipment and works inspired by video games.
Kai Saarto lives in city of Turku, Finland, with his wife, sons and two crazy springer spaniels.
