I am Finnish visual artist Elli Maanpää painting my animated ways. Colourful imaginative animals are the core of my creativity.
I’ve born in July 1985 in Turku Finland. 2013 I graduated as Master of Arts (Art and Design) from Visual Culture from the Fine Art Department of Aalto University. Animation I studied in Turku Arts Academy. I also have an BA in Fashion Design. My work methods vary from traditional to digital painting. In summer 2015 I held a solo painting exhibition in collaboration with the Helsinki Zoo Korkeasaari. The exhibition Uhanalaiset/Endangered raised awareness of the endangered species conserved by the Zoo. I currently live in Turku Finland with my burmese cat Cocco and bearded boyfriend Herra Kuula.
