Reached hundreds of millions people through being featured on BBC World, The Independent, International Business Times, Times of India, Helsinki Times, Express Tribune, Asian Image and variety of social media sites.

Changed cultural & financial paradigms, sold art pieces for over 10.000€ each and worked with international stars and brands. Works quoted as being the most progressive and original in the history of Western expression.

“Vesa’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

“Kivinen’s work had no points of reference. Unlike most local artists, Kivinen wasn’t recycling successful foreign approaches and adapting them within a local context. He wasn’t replicating a preexisting genre or playing out well known devices. Whether for better or for worse, Kivinen is – as childish as this may sound – an original.” - A critique by Rory Winston in the City Magazine, August 2014

“These are beautiful images and nobody would dispute it” -Jeremy Paxman, Journalist, BBC World, 2013

Vesa (born 1978) started his internationally succesful 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 non-stop since through his own company. In 2008, Kivinen developed a form of mixed media art called Artevo (Art Evolving) which involves body-painting, traditional painting, photography and digital image collaging.
