ABOUT LEA LINTULA

Art is wiser than us and comes  from a wider place than me or you.

I am a young queer Finnish artist and climate activist. My artistic work gives my soul space to play in the physical world and add understanding to connections of life around me.


Material and ethereal worlds can find intersections in my works through colors, shapes and working methods or feels while working. Processing my place and feelings in the ecological- and social systems is a large part of my growing understanding what it is to also be an artist and human in communities. My works are trying to build bridges between the mental and the physical world  in order to add understanding and appreciation to the nature and us, as our destroyed home.

Right now I am working with environmental justice movements.


It has been common for me to work with different kind of media such as paintings, bodies, photographs, texts and random substances that had came to my life. My body is my best tool to understand feelings of places and it is a starting point of creations, imagination comes next. I have found that my way to make art has to try to be ecologically sustainable and as far as I can away from borgeuois art scene. I am all the time learning my ways and techniques to try to get there.

I enjoy in working with collectives and/or co-working, read philopsophy and practise empathy as parth of my artistic practices.
