Kaisla Laranta 

I am an Barcelona based artist, writer and activist, from Helsinki, Finland.

 I grew up on an island so the sea and nature have always been present and important aspect of my life. I feel like my northern roots and mediterranean home give me a view to see things from two perspectives. I get inspiration from the things around that  bring up an emotion. I capture  my surroundings, and channel them into art.  

 

 

Art media: 

Mostly I work with resin and acrylic paints but also create installations and videos, and  work with clay and lights. 

 

Poet project:

I founded Sanataide lava - collective with Elena Sulin, after I graduated from Laajasalon opisto. The collective is made of  group of poets who perform their self written pieces on stage. The collective has performed in many bars and festivals including: Suvilahti Planeetta festival, Solstice festival, and Visio festival.
