Heidi Sundvik is a Finnish-British artist based in London. She holds a M.Sc (Econ) from Helsinki School of Economics, PGCE from University College London and Fine Art Diploma from the London Art Academy. On graduation from the LAA, she was awarded Pure Arts prize, Liberty Arts award and a residency in Shanghai.
During her studies at the RCA, the direction of her work has taken a significant change towards contemporary issues, especially climate change and dementia. The changing world calls for an adjustment and the time to do it is now. The question is, what kind of a world are we leaving to our children and grandchildren?
