Isa Kiviaho (b. 1993) is a versatile and adventurous visual artist. Kiviaho studies the world with a twinkle in her eye and strives to learn and get to know our world and its various phenomena as widely as possible.
Kiviaho creates a record to communicate and present the things she observes through her artwork; videos, photography, drawing, painting, digitally and with traditional technology, installations, collages, sculptures, sound worlds, word art and performing arts.
Kiviaho loves to play with different perspectives and roles, as well as deal with uncomfortable themes and concepts. She is eager to break her own boundaries and very curious to try new things. Sensitively perceived themes range extensively and richly from society’s commentary to imaginative surreal fairytale worlds, from exploratory scientific fact-based topics to deep dives into mystical spiritual phenomena, and the oceans of human soul emotions.
Kiviaho defines herself as a world citizen who feels at home wherever in the world she travels. The Mikkeli-based artist has lived in Spain, Italy, and Prague, where she also supported herself by painting murals.
At the moment, she has settled in Tampere to deepen her knowledge in the field of art in the Fine Art line of Tampere University of Applied Sciences. She held her first own exhibition Boundary Experimentation in Studio Wäkewä in Mikkeli in 2017, after which she has participated in joint exhibitions every year since. She has also been an organizer of art events for the city of Mikkeli and has also supported herself as a children’s art teacher.
