Just a while ago having your portrait painted was as important part of feeling opulence.

Then it got old.

And people could not participate much.

It was not fun.

Many look at a modern portrait painting like teenager looks at a landline telephone.

Until now.

It is a pleasure to recognize and appreciate Vesa’s work before he becomes a global star.

Kivinen’s work had no points of reference. Unlike most local artists, Kivinen wasn’t recycling successful foreign approaches and adapting them within a local context. He wasn’t replicating a preexisting genre or playing out well known devices. Whether for better or for worse, Kivinen is – as childish as this may sound – an original.
— Rory Winston, Cultural editor of the New York Resident August 2014
Vesa’s art is amongst the most integrally advanced in the history of Western abstraction – no small claim, but one backed up by the works themselves. Rather than abstraction as a fleeing from life, his works are a diving into the incarnate mystery of human being — direct celebrations of the fullness of Life.
— Michael Schwartz, Professor of History and Philosophy of Art, Augusta State University, March 2014
When Finnish artist Vesa Kivinen captures your “portrait,” he doesn’t just hint at the contents of your soul—your deepest fears, desires, triumphs, and avenues of personal expression. Vesa brings them all to the surface, creating collage imagery that reveal more about his subjects than even the subjects themselves thought possible. While he is not the first to do this kind of work, he may very well be the best.
— DL Cade, Editor in Chief of 500px, February 2016
The beauty of Kivinen’s work is that his pieces can exist at separate stages in time simultaneously, making portions of his portfolio a series of interrelated works that move forwards and backwards in time, imagining different possible transformations, and allow for different future possibilities.
