Heini Mika is a Finnish artist who works and resides in New York City.
In her acrylic paintings, Heini explores the complex nature of her female heroes and the impact these women have had on pop culture.
Her bright color palette and almost cartoonish art style juxtapose the true stories behind her female subjects.
Coming from a positive mindset, Heini wants to celebrate these women and their stories, while kindly reminding the viewer that there is always so much more underneath than meets the eye.
Heini has a BA degree in Fine Arts from the University of Worcester (UK) and a Fine Art and Visual Communications degree from the Pekka Halonen Academy of Art (Finland). She has exhibited her paintings around the world, most notably in The United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, and New York. Her paintings have been published in the British Vogue and All She Makes magazine and some of her works are held by private collectors.
