Young Estonian Artist Liis Koger Presents Paintings at SomoS Art House Berlin

Young Estonian Artist Liis Koger Presents Paintings at SomoS Art House Berlin

Born 1989 in Pärnu and currently based in Tallinn, Liis Koger has graduated from Pärnu Sütevaka High School Of Humanistics, and studied Psychology and Theology at University of Tartu, graduating there in 2013 with a BA degree in Painting, Fine Arts. Liis Koger has been accepted to study for her MA in Visual Communication at London's Royal College of Art 2014/15.

Painting and poetry are connected in many ways. If one looks at poets/artists like Jean Cocteau, Max Jacob, William Blake or Pablo Picasso, it becomes clear that being a poet adds an extra, often somewhat esoteric dimension to other artistic expressions the poet might choose.

Kogers's paintings are distinguished by a high level of lyricism and introspection. The classic abstract Nordic painterly tradition of artists such as Per Kirkeby is given a contemporary and mature interpretation.

Since 2010, Liis Koger has exhibited widely, enjoyed solo and group shows in Estonia, Italy, UK, USA and Switzerland. Her work is present in private collections in Estonia, Sweden, Italy, Switzerland, Norway. Works in public spaces include Riigikogu, The Parliament Of Estonia, Toompea, Tallinn, Estonia and the Institute Of Mathematical Statistics, Tartu, Estonia.
