Tiny Ropes of Misery, 2008. Collaboration with photographer Anja Schaffner
Riitta Ikonen is a self-described "interdisciplinary artist creating visionary images through costume and collaboration." Working across different media, Riitta produces delightful work, insightful work, political work or a combo thereof. Everything on her website is enjoyable (try 'Fantasticology'); she's done some really cool things ('Mail Art') and won some wicked awards (Shortlisted for the London 2012 Olympic Bridges arts commission).
Riitta was born and raised in Finland, and now lectures at the University of Brighton in England. She has exhibited worldwide regularly since 2004 and been involved in a myriad of creative ventures. Hat tip to photographer Janette Beckman for the intro via her pal, artist Ian Wright.
This was a tough edit to make so better visit her website and see what else you might enjoy.
