Johannes Nevala depicts in his book a shore where birds land and leave an impression. Sketches and paintings are interwoven with texts taken from notes in field.

The book is richly illustrated with more than 50 of  Johannes artwork and it will give a true sense of getting close to the life on the shore. Specially from the point of birds and an artist who lives close to them. The book begins with the first days in march and ends when there is snow in the air in the end of november:

“So intense , so close. The wind grabs what remains a feather.”

Johannes Nevala is an artist who lives on the island of Gotland in the middle of the Baltic Sea. The landscape, light and abundant bird life, are the basis and inspiration for his work. 

In 1993 he debuted with “Birds in watercolor”. The exhibition gave him the opportunity to explore and work in a larger scale.  In 1998 he had a new major exhibition, ”Birds in light”, which marked an important milestone to his artistic career. During the years that followed he had several other exhibitions at home and abroad. Since 2003 he has been selected several times for participation in the world's most prestigious exhibition “Birds in Art”, arranged by the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum.
