Meri Aisala was born in 1992 in the heart of Lapland in Rovaniemi, Finland. She was an art line student in high school and continued on to study graphic design in University of Lapland, where she got her bachelor's and master's degrees with a major in graphic design and minoring in art history. She is also currently studying education psychology and gender studies in University of Oulu while working on her art.
My art tends to skew towards dark surrealism, but sometimes I also find myself lost in some bright and colorful, happier self-expression. I like to put my difficult and strong emotions into my art and use it to deal with difficult questions I'm grappling with. A lot of those issues tend to be connected to my borderline personality disorder, which makes me experience the world more intensely than others. I also like to use art as another vessel for my interests in alternative fashion and whatever else I may find myself obsessed with.
My favorite mediums to work with are colored pencils and acrylic paints.
