Soile Paloheimo’s print-informed art combines traditional print techniques with a contemporary subject matter. A native of Finland, Paloheimo earned a Bachelor’s degree in Culture and Arts from the Espoo-Vantaa Technical University of Applied Sciences, Finland, in 2006 and graduated with BA in Fine arts at RMIT University, Melbourne in 2022.

Paloheimo’s practice for the last decade has been in graphic design. However, after moving to Melbourne, she translated her artistic vision into the medium of printmaking, continuing to transform it into an exploration of print and installation. Paloheimo uses various print matrixes, such as screen print, etching and relief, to create intricate and thought-provoking works. Her recent work questions the notions of interference and memory within society after multiple isolation periods caused by Covid-19. Paloheimo’s work is intended to replicate the experience of alienation and seeks to be a tribute to the ubiquity, irrationality, and unpredictability of life.
