Marika Markström is a visual artist whose main interests range from psychic mechanisms within individual and collective entities to socio-economical, political, environmental and existential issues. Although the concepts play the central role, the aesthetics expressing them is of greatest importance. Her works usually consist of audiovisual compositions, often in relation to sculptural elements. Light, darkness, sound, color and materiality are always essential in these spatial installations. Performance, painting and drawing occasionally coexist with the other forms of expression.
Marika took her MFA (Master of Fine Arts) at Malmö Art Academy in Malmö 2014 and her BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki 2012.
