"After years of creating digital art I was still searching what exactly I wanted to achieve and create in my work. I came across the Belgian surreal artist Rene Magritte. When I first saw his work it was then that I wanted to create scenes of idiotic and unreal places."

Anna-Maija Rissanen

“Tensions such as visibility-invisibility and fragility-power inspire me; linking how I experience life. I tend to represent these themes through landscape scenes that lay in between eastern-western representations of figurative and abstract painting in divers supports and medias.”

Music Plays - From Sound-Writing Series Black ink pen on paper 10 x 25 cm

Anna-Maija Rissanen is a Belgian-Finnish landscape painter who focuses mainly on painting poetic inner meditative landscapes of water and rock, between western and eastern representation, between abstract and figurative. Her work focuses on searching a balance between fragility and power through mixed perspectives and layers. She uses mainly mixed media that includes among others watercolors, acrylic, Chinese ink, and collage.

Born 1983, in Järvenpää, Finland, Rissanen lived from 1995 to 2009 in Brussels, Belgium. She graduated in 2009 with an MA in Fine Arts from the Royal Fine-Arts Academy of Brussels and also certified as an art teacher.  In 2009 she won the first prize of Godecharle of 5,000 € awarded by the Godecharle foundation that gave her the opportunity to continue her studies in China. During 2012-2013 Rissanen studied techniques of traditional Chinese painting at the China Art Academy in Hangzhou (one of the best art academies in China).
