Veera Kulju (Finnish, b. 1975) is a multi-media artist living and maintaining a studio in Helsinki, Finland. Self-described as a “hybrid of a curious, random-minded artist and a rational, business-oriented designer”, Kulju creates work that poetically dances along the line between art and design, toying with the distinctions between the decorative and the functional. Working primary with ceramics and textiles, she makes intensely layered work built up from small, discreet elements. These small elements, when brought together, give way to a larger compositional intent. While Kulju generally limits herself to a restrained palette of black and white – she is experimental in her choice of material, often introducing unexpected elements into her work.
