the story of my destiny   

When I was a child there was a seascape with gigantic wave, hanging on the wall by my bed. I remember how, at bed-time, instead of going to sleep, I roamed on crests of the waves and slid down to the trough. In that stormy sea I had my own place to crawl into when I felt sleepy, and so I often dozed off in the embrace of the silky wave.The picture by my bed was a copy of The Ninth Wave (1850), by Ivan Aivazovski. And today, three of my seascapes are hanging in one room side by side with Ivan Aivazovski’s works at the Marine Art Museum in Otchakow, Ukraine.

Can you imagine! Now sleep together our pictures!

So, when people ask me how long it took me to complete this or that painting, I am always tempted to answer: A long, long time – since childhood.

SOME LATEST INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITIONS

2019 in Kumu Art Museum: Open Collections. The Artist Takes the Floor invites visitors to walk through a forest of art history and sees to it that the walk is a meandering journey, taking museum-goers from main paths to enjoyable side trails which have not yet been fully assessed and categorised in art history.In inviting the artists, the curator considered their creative profiles with the aim of involving different media. Several invited artists made the initial choice of pieces of interest based on the electronic museum database MuIS and the digital collection of the Art Museum of Estonia, which was followed by actual work with the collection. The works of art on exhibit cover the period from the 17th to the 21st centuries.

 The project curated by Maria Arusoo is centred around the theme of the female body in Aili Vint’s prints and the Serbian artist Ivana Bašić’s sculptures. Under the keyword “afterlife of flowers”, the artists Foxy Haze and Jennifer Steinkamp (USA) explore the afterlife of now marginalised art genres in contemporary art projects.

2016 Soviet Hippies are present at the exhibition: PEACE AND LOVE Soviet Hippies, a new exhibition at London's Red Gallery, takes visitors back to Soviet Estonia to step into a parallel universe — the hippie movement that existed within the Brezhnev regime.

Curated by KIWA and Terje Toomistu, the exhibition is based on an in-depth anthropological study, which saw the pair interview 15 people who were part of the hippie movement in the “Soviet West”, as Estonia was known owing to its bohemian feel and rock music scene. Visitors to Soviet Hippies will be able to get a privileged insight into the experience of this generation, with the interview films and a rich array of archive photography due to be shown at the exhibition.

2014-2015   Aili Vint's and Toomas Vint's  exhibition: ARTIST'S  FOOTPRINT, Tallinn Art Hall, Estonia

Together with Toomas Vint it was our intent to put the visitors, as they entered the Tallinn Art Hall, into the right frame of mind. For that we prepared a surprise for the people rushing in from the winter gloom. They could see The Sun rising in the display window, and upon entering, they were walking on grass and the scent of fresh-mow in hay tickled their nouse.
