Philip Luddite is performance and visual artist. Lives and works in Tampere, Finland.

More then twenty years, Philip Luddite has been active artistically in the fields of painting, installation, video, collage and performance art. The themes he is working with can be found in subjects like ritualism, archetypes, death, sexuality and gender, collective unconsciousness, alchemy and outsider art.

Although originally rather oriented towards painting and the fine arts, his interest and artistic expression in recent years, has become more pronounced in his performances.

Philip Luddites annual creation of collage books, not only reflect his work as a performance artist and a general view towards live as a diary.

He also uses the books as an active ingredient in his performances, in the form of live screening. The multidimensional nature of his books stands in direct relation to the performances, where he uses a wide range of materials, concepts and ways of expression.

Since 2012 Philip Luddites focus has become collaboration by initiating the international performance project named I.F.A.(Its Not Funny Anymore). The Group participating in this project consists of changing members and actions according to resources in the time space context. Exhibiting and performing live Philip Luddite has been traveling and living in the Baltic countries, Europe, Australia, the Himalayas and the United States.
