mei pienTeemu Takatalo(b. 1979) is Finnish visual artist, songwriter and film maker. Everyday politics and alternative ways-of-living are often the topic of his utopic-documentative video-works, photographs, installations and sound-works.

Takatalo is the founder of an artistic city research unit Center of Urban Expeditions. He has been part of Floating Residence Project, building D.I.Y. river rafts from recycled materials in Lithuania 2005 and in Germany 2006. During years 2007 and 2008 Takatalo walked from Brussels to Istanbul with his colleague Raila Knuuttila. In 2010 he and bunch of other artists and craftsmans build another recycled material water vessel. Sailing boat Silakka was launched on Baltic sea on the same summer and sent on voyage to research the complexity of our self-destructive contemporary lifestyle and society. Since 2011 Takatalo has been working with problems of consumerism and so-called green capitalism. The results has been compiled in series of art-works under the title Enlighten Consumer. In 2016 Takatalo published his first solo album Vallankumous kämmenellä.

Teemu Takatalo's art has been exhibited in several solo and joint-exhibitions, video festivals and video-art screenings in Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Belgium, Greece, Denmark and Germany.
