Isabella Chydenius

Isabella Chydenius is a painter and installation artist. With experience in sculptural practices such as metal welding, ceramics and womens- and menswear design, she likes combining multiple disciplines and experimenting with new mediums.

Her work expresses her curiosity and concern for the future of the human kind and the environment. She is influenced by our position and ideal as social creatures in the current society. Her focus of creation is the human body as well as the thought of a meta-universal existence.

She has a background in fine arts, painting and ceramics, since a young age. Fused with her great interest in exploring the human body and with her interest in creating three-dimensional space, she later on went to study women’s and menswear couture in Paris.

After her studies in France she moved to London to successfully work in the fashion industry at Erdem, Vivienne Westwood and Jonathan Saunders. However early in year 2013 her need to communicate the human mind and our existence got her to move back to arts. Since then she has expanded her area of work to installations and metal sculptures.
