I am Finnish visual artist Elli Maanpää. There is two sides of me: The designer who wants to solve other people’s problems. And the artist who wants to create her own.
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. I currently study Animation in Turku Arts Academy. I have BA in Fashion Design. I’ve created paintings, short films and plenty of Christmas cards. My work methods vary from traditional to digital. 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.
