Biography

Moa Krestesen was born in Stockholm in 1976 but lives in northern Sweden (Umeå and Tärnaby). Since she finished her Master of Fine Art at the Art Academy in Umeå, she has in addition to her own art practice worked as head teacher and guest teacher at the Preparatory Art School in Umeå, as a project manager at the artist-run gallery Verkligheten and later as director and developer at Konstfrämjandet in Västerbotten. She has had commissions as an expert in several areas, for instance the Anna Nordlander prize, the Kiruna scholarship and in the development of the new Culture House in Umeå. Moa is also active in the design and lifestyle company Hikki.

After a studio residence at Iaspis in Stockholm in 2010, co-operation in the artist duo SOJ – Sisters of Jam – has been central in her artistic practice.
