Collection: Lisa Rinnevuo

The spray painted faces are simple to leave something unsaid to the viewer. But the message is always the same: believe in yourself and what you do. Artist Lisa Rinnevuo's paintings do not belong to any -ism. They are simply Lisa paintings. Daydreamer, city kid and successful artist. For over ten years, Lisa Rinnevuo has been a bright shining star in the artist's sky. Her characteristic spray-painted faces, often without noses and mouths, are hugely appreciated and the paintings sell out within half an hour as soon as she has a vernissage. Because there are many people who want a Lisa painting on the wall.


- My paintings have never fit into any -ism and I don't want that either. I never know where I'm going and I don't work with any sketches. That's why my paintings are always authentic. What I do know is that I want a simple expression and not overwork the figures. However, I can spend a lot of time on the background, where I work a lot with layer upon layer to get the right feeling in the image. But when it comes to the figures, they are welcome to feel a little half-finished in order to leave something unsaid to the viewer.
