Piia Rossi is an artist dividing her time between Ireland, Finland, Slovakia and Germany. Her practice consists of participatory art projects, printmaking and drawing. Rossi’s themes are often based on home, belonging, identity and pining. Currently, she is a PhD student at the Bielefeld University, Germany.

Rossi’s art practice has gradually developed to the direction of participatory projects and public encounters where the ideal outcome is when the art made by the initiating artist and the art produced by the participants get fused and become one. Rossi’s projects take an experimental approach to contemporary art production as it requires equal commitment from the participant and the initiating artists and acts as generator of material, knowledge and experiences.

In her studio based work Rossi’s chosen techniques are drawing and printmaking although her work often takes a 3D form. She is mostly interested in fine line drawing using any medium that suits the particular piece; pencil, ink, colouring pencils, marker, pen, and various printmaking techniques.
