Artevo is a mixed media form of art by Vesa Kivinen

Vesa Kivinen (born 1978) started his career as a filmmaker and a photographer in 1999. He got educated as a director in the UK and has been working with both disciplines internationally since through his own company. In 2008 he developed a form of mixed media art called Artevo (Art Evolving) which involves body-painting, traditional painting, photography and image manipulation. His recent collaboration with a Bollywood actress got cross cultural attention including The Independent, BBC World, Times of India, Pakistan Tribune, Helsingin Sanomat etc.

“Kivinen’s art is amongst the most integrally advanced in the history of Western abstraction – no small claim, but one backed up by the works themselves. Rather than abstraction as a fleeing from life, his works are a diving into the incarnate mystery of human being — direct celebrations of the fullness of Life.” – Michael Schwartz, Professor of History and Philosophy of Art, Augusta State University, March 2014

The works are sold under an innovative pricing system.

Share and Raw are concepts developed to house works that do not fit with the main theme. They are traditionally priced.
