Kiwa (1975) is an Estonian artist, composer, curator and litterateur, founder of the ;paranoia publishing house. He has studied sculpture at the Tartu Art School and the Estonian Academy of Arts. The Estonian Centre for Contemporary Art describes Kiwa as a reluctant machine who dislocates found motifs and quotations. Linking anarchic and pop-principles, the means of expression the artist uses vary from sculpture to painting, performance to video and sound to text.

Since 2014, Kiwa has been running ;Paranoia, a publishing house that publishes books that no other publisher is willing to publish for political, economic, aesthetic or other reasons.

Kiwa has curated many exhibitions (since 1999). He has lectured at the Estonian Academy of Arts (2006-2018), run the sound art platform “metabor” (2001-2004) and the ethnographic documentary project “Soviet hippies”. His works are held in the collections of the Art Museum of Estonia, Tartu Art Museum, Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia, and in private collections in Estonia, Europe and the United States. He was a recipient of the Artist’s Salary 2017-2019.
In 2023, the Kiwa exhibition “The Robot’s Way is a Shift” was held at Artrovert Gallery
