Last year we connected with the amazingly talented artist, Vesa Kivinen. He’s famous for his beautiful creations combining photography and body paint. This unique art form is something he has coined “Artevo”. We were so pleased to hear from him again this year with a new project.
Vesa recently had the outstanding opportunity of working with Veena Malik, a famous Pakistani bollywood actress, model, and television host. Veena has gained acclaim for her skill and body of work as a performer. She’s also pushed many boundaries as an artistically expressive and open Muslim woman. Because of this she has gathered emotion, criticism, admiration, and inspiration from countless people around the world. The following images are from the collaboration between Veena and Vesa. They are both beautiful and inspiring. It’s wonderful to see artists collaborating like this in pursuit of pushing social boundaries in the name of art.
