ABOUT THE ARTIST

Vesa (born 1978) started his internationally successful career as a filmmaker and a photographer in 1999. In 2008, Kivinen developed a form of mixed media art called Artevo (Art Evolving) which involves body-painting, traditional painting, photography and image manipulation. Artevo starts by getting to know the real story of the person he works with on a very personal manner. This story is then processed in relation to the artist as well as its cultural and spiritual context on a more broad level.
 
Artevo describes a fusion of photography and paint mediums, further intensified by additional undisclosed aspects. The end product is rich in visual texture and emotional depth, providing a channel for inner experiences outwards, emphasizing how the creative journey is every bit as valuable. The Artevo process also involves a potentially cathartic process for the model through NLP practices, which blended with philosophy absorbed from inspirational thinkers to then become the final pieces of art.
 
His recent 2013 collaboration with the Bollywood actress Veena Malik, got cross cultural attention including The Independent, BBC World, Times of India, Pakistan Tribune, Helsingin Sanomat. At least 300 million people were exposed to the works. These works were also quoted to have: ‘‘Reinvented cultural norms as we know them.” 
 
Kivinen runs both Evolver Films and Evolver Photography since 2006, making International documentaries, TV series, promotional, advertising, music videos and a multitude of still productions ranging from national / international private, company and celebrity clients.
