Eeva Peura (b. 1982), based in Helsinki, received her MFA in painting from the Finnish Academy of Fine Art in 2011. She also studied in Akademie Výtvarných Umeni in Prague and in the School of Fine Art in Satakunta University of Applied Sciences.
With painting as her primary working method Eeva Peura discusses both big and small topics. Her works are at times complemented with miniature sculptures and installations. Peura’s pieces often have an ironic and tragic character to them while at the same time possessing a great warmth and depth. Each piece is an artefact that stands as testament of a more comprehensive narrative, the story of Eeva Peura’s artistic work as a whole. This artist employs an approach towards her art that can be described as lovingly organic if not comraderly.
