Sanna Karlsson-Sutisna is a dance and visual artist who graduated from the Finnish Art Academy in 1989. Her professional experience includes studies at the Berlin High School of Arts, as well as further studies in Cuba and Bali. She has focused on studying the roots of art in ritual cultures. She is best known for bringing art to everyday life by performing and sculpting in surprising places, for her environmental art, and for creating permanent “Flower of Life” art parks in Helsinki and France for children under 3 and their families. She has combined images, sculpture and dance to suffuse her performances with ritual form and multicultural elements. Her expert knowledge of Balinese culture and dance add depth and conviction to her work. Karlsson-Sutisna has held solo-exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions since 1979, and given dance performances in both Finland and abroad, in Germany, Denmark, Russia, Sweden, Austria, Poland, England, Indonesia and Cuba. Her works are part of both public and private collections.

Karlsson-Sutisna’s art searches for an increasingly deep unity with nature. She sends roots down deep into the earth and draws the traditions of our ancestors up to the modern human being.
