Artevo is the name of the mixed media form of art made by Vesa Kivinen
WHAT is Emotional alchemy?
Through discovering the perceivably private yet universal within us, we can experience a much better ride as human beings. Through practicing emotional alchemy, by turning our deep hurts and triumphs into sustained resources, art pieces can become 'how to' maps of experience, enlightenment and affluence. Through courage, multi-disciplinary techniques and constructive intention they can shine as concrete illustrations of moments of healing and positive change.
Artevo often involves:
- Oil / Ink / Acrylic Painting
- Photography (both studio and nature)
- Performance / Ritual
- Digital collaging.
- Proofsec / Canvas printing
...in various combinations under the titles Artevo, Share and Raw.

Vesa (born 1978) started his international career as a filmmaker and a photographer in 1999. He graduated as a director (BA) in the UK in 2003 and innovated Artevo in 2008. He is based in London and Helsinki.
The cultural editor of the New York Resident Rory Winston has said about it: “‘Witness history as though it were being lived today; and imagine the present through the eyes of tomorrow. The works are a dialogue between three dimensional physiology and gesture coupled with the aesthetics of two dimensional painting that coalesce into a singular object of art.”
The Proofsec versions of these pieces are sold under an innovative pricing system.
The canvas editions are traditional 10+2AP versions as same size prints.
Posters are also available in various sizes.
