This is us.

So might be a hybrid of a curious, random minded artist and a rational, business orientated designer. Working together in good harmony yet fast and efficient way. The love for concepts is our fuel. We believe in kindness and that communication is the key to everything.

So this is us,

Artist and designer Veera Kulju

graduated from Aalto University in 2010 and has since worked widely in the field of art and design. She has showcased her work both in Finland and internationally. Years 2017 and 2018 she worked as Arabia Art Department Society’s visiting artist. Working at the legendary Arabia Art Department and art grants gave her the freedom for pure artistic interpretation.

Kulju works with textiles, ceramics and video. Her starting points in selecting the medium are contextual, often combining different materials in the same work. She aims to assemble installations characterized by abundant fragility and an atmosphere of permanence and timelessness.

Although Kulju’s works encompass conceptual layers created through the materials, the aim is for viewing them to be physically experiential. Through the materiality and artistic idiom of her works, Kulju succeeds in conveying how they feel. Just by looking at the artworks, the viewer feels the differences between matte and glossy, rough and smooth, warm and cold in his fingertips.
