Heart on Stage

Heart On Stage is an unique art project combining poetry and illustration on a deeper level. It’s a cross-cultural collaboration, between Brazilian artist Luiz Risi and Finnish artist Leena Yliportimo. The aim of the artwork isn’t simply to pair illustrations with poems, but rather to meld the two into a mutually- informative data stream that provides both intellectual and visual pleasure. The poetry and the artwork itself blend in a deeper dimension for each piece, creating a parallel world in between. Everything else came after the writing; the project started with the selection of more than 400 poems chosen by Leena & Luiz.

Heart On Stage” is art where poems and illustrations unite, creating a deeper dimension.
It’s also a cross-cultural art collaboration, Luiz being Brazilian and Leena being Finnish.
Nowadays they live in Amsterdam.
