Brad Pitt’s Artworks Are Part Of Sara Hildén Art Museum In Tampere

Bradley Pitt is an American actor and film producer. He is the recipient of various accolades, including an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, two Golden Globe Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Award and a Primetime Emmy Award.

Brad Pitt isn’t just a stud in the film world, the dude’s doing big things in the art space too, putting his latest works on display in a land far, far away.

According to Business Wire, Sara Hildén Art Museum in Tampere Finland is proud to present Thomas Houseago’s first exhibition in the Nordic countries. Thomas Houseago is a world-renowned artist. In the Tampere exhibition, Houseago is presenting his own sculptures and paintings alongside a ceramic series by Nick Cave and sculptures by Brad Pitt. Cave and Pitt are already renowned in their respective fields of music and cinema, but this is the first time ever they have exhibited their artwork pieces created during the course of an ongoing dialogue with Houseago.

“I’m very happy and proud that Thomas Houseago decided to bring WE to Tampere. It is also exciting to get to experience a new and different artistic side of Nick Cave and Brad Pitt. WE delivers a strong message of working together, creating something new and a sense of community that is compatible with Tampere, as the city is known for its capacity for change and making bold decisions together. The message of doing together and relying on each other is very powerful in these turbulent times”, says Anna-Kaisa Ikonen, Mayor of Tampere.

In addition to the WE-exhibition at Sara Hildén, Tampere’s autumn and winter of art is plentiful and bright. Tampere Art Museum offers rarities from Finnish art foundations commencing on Oct 8th. The exhibition includes works by artists such as Helene Schjerfbeck, Ellen Thesleff, Fanny Churberg, Akseli Gallen-Kallela and Tyko Sallinen. The other museums of Tampere, for example Vapriikki, offer experiences for the whole family. Especially the Moomin Museum is a favourite of kids.

The Tampere Philharmonic plays beloved classics and new pieces. The brand new Nokia Arena will host exciting international concerts. Tampere is also the theatre capital of Finland, and the theatres of Tampere are full of great musicals, drama, comedy and crime stories.

Tampere has direct flight routes to many European destinations, for example to Amsterdam, Oslo, Malaga, Riga and München. It is also easily reached from the Finnish capital Helsinki, for example, the train ride from Helsinki to Tampere takes about 1,5 hours.

According to TMZ, The actor/producer apparently submitted a number of pieces he created for a gallery exhibition over in Tampere, Finland. The event was held at a well-known museum, and it was dubbed “Thomas Houseago’s WE with Nick Cave & Brad Pitt.”

It appears Brad had 9 different items to show ranging from large creations (like the bronze encasing, a la Han Solo’s carbon freeze) to smaller ones such as the trapped bullets he crystalized in platinum silicon and the modest house miniature he made out of tree bark.

The photos of Brad’s artwork were captured by artist/designer DeBranne Treu, who says her hubby’s pals with Brad. She had nothing but praise for BP, writing, “To say his work is great is an understatement as he is a true artist creating out of extreme passion and drive. The dedication to his craft is humbling and inspiring.”

“Last night we celebrated our dear friend, Brad Pitt’s first art show and everyone was BLOWN AWAY. To say his work is great is an understatement as he is a true artist creating out of extreme passion and drive. The dedication to his craft is humbling and inspiring. A night filled with true artists and collectors having such a deep appreciation for the arts, the night boiling over with love throughout the rooms. I cannot express how proud I am of my husbands best friend. As they have been creating many long days and nights together over the years, I hope this helps encourage my husband to find time for his FIRST ART SHOW!! Wouldn’t you like to see Jarred’s work? @instajarred #art #creativity #artshow #sculpture #paintings #bradpitt @sarahildenart Thank you for hosting such an incredible show & giving Brad the opportunity to display his incredible works of art ❤️ Truly a magical evening!!”

There are titles attached to some of Brad’s works of art, and they’re interesting. A lot of the blocks of bullets seem to go by variations of this “Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound to the House,” plus another that reads, “Aiming At You I Saw Me But It Was Too Late This Time.”

Other titles for his art include “Buried Needs,” “Slave to Our Vices,” “House-A-Go-Go” and “Candle Holders for Loved Ones.” BP himself wasn’t there in person for the showing.
