Kadri Nikopensius

  • Tallinn, Estonia

Involved in film-making and photography since 2013. Started and studied professionally as a cinematographer, so I started off as a AC and a gaffer, but also found myself doing casting, assistant directing and PA-ing. I also do screenwriting for film.
Right now I'm specializing in producing, visual effects and colour grading.

Emerging painter since year 2010, have participated in art exhibitions in Estonia, Finland and UK. I use traditional medium of oil on massive formats of canvases combined into a contemporary approach mainly about peace and war.

In 2012 I won Tartu culture prize in young talent category for exceptional achievements in painting. Latest exhibition was held in Tallinn Art Hall, Estonia in August 2014. Currently working on an exhibition project about international warfare.
