Timo Rannali has been a full time artist since the late 1990s and works from his Mount Maunganui studio. His genre can be described as “stylized realism with a naive bent”. Often the themes in his work positively celebrate the environment; in particular man`s interaction with the environment. His compositions always view the world from a wide angle perspective and his paintings are marked with vibrant colour and exaggerated shapes and form. Timo`s genre has suited the commission market where his clients are able to obtain “personalised” pieces that celebrate aspects of their lives.
