Kristian Smeds character performs in ten scenes in "God is beauty" and forms the image of an artist who is in service of beauty, which ever since Modernism began is not an easy thing to do. The painter Vilho Lampi really existed (1898 – 1936).  Smed's play is based on a novel about him, yet still shows a universal figure who wants to be free and struggles to break free from his chains, revealing that precisely this battle is the subject of art today.
