Toomas Kuusing (born 1976) has studied art in Academia Non Grata, Estonian Academy of Arts College in Pärnu and in the Estonian Academy of Arts. Kuusing´s works exhibit a sense of youthful rebellion, a call for revolution. He often uses allegory and distorting mirrors to address politically problematic issues. Kuusing sees the master of the Netherlands’ renaissance, Hieronymus Bosch, as one of his main role models. In addition to painting and printmaking, performance art holds a firm place in Kuusing´s artistic activity.
