RIITTA KUISMA

BIOGRAPHY

Riitta Kuisma is a Hong Kong based visual artist, who has been living in Hong Kong since 1997.
Born in Finland, Riitta studied in a painting faculty at Turku Arts Academy before she left for
Moscow to study monumental and decorative painting. She received Masters Degree in
Fine Arts in monumental painting and art criticism from Moscow State University of
Industrial and Applied Arts (named Stroganov) in 1996.

Besides being a portrait artist, Riitta’s works have a strong relation to nature. Her mural wall
art, drawings and paintings often discuss the nature’s existence in interaction with human.
Since 2015, Riitta has been working in Hong Kong on common and public mural projects,
being called upon by Home Affairs Department, District Councils, nonprofit organisations
and local charities. Her clients also include property developers, hotels, restaurants, local
companies and private home owners.

Riitta has held solo exhibitions and joined many group exhibitions in Europe and Asia. Her
works can be seen in many public places in Hong Kong and in private collections all over
the world. She has received grants for her works and projects from Finnish Cultural
Foundation.
