About the artist

Iidu Tikkanen is a Finnish artist whose fantastical canvases transform ordinary objects and elements into colourful, imaginative images. Her work explores perception and the way we experience and understand the visual world. We love Iidu’s psychedelic colours and her busy, energetic compositions. Brighten a room with one of the beautiful paintings Iidu has made available here at Rise Art.

Iidu graduated from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, and currently lives and works in Tampere. The artist has had her work featured in solo and group exhibitions, both in Finland and abroad. Her paintings are held in some major collections, including the Finnish State Art Collection and the Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art.

The Insider Katie Tsouros says:

"If you could pinpoint the space in time where myths and fantasies begin to grow, I think you might find it reflected in Iidu’s endlessly intriguing paintings."
