Born in 1968, lives and works in Vaasa.

Rosvik has a background as a visual artist, born in Vaasa, Finland, raised in Sweden and living in western Finland. At the moment Rosvik in his artwork explores human actions of cultural identity of another kind than traditional representations. His main interest is to create reactions on the contemporary state of consumerism - consumerism of experiences, of relations, culture and humanism.

Alternative cultural expressions and underground culture has offered him expressions of otherness to the same extent as the visual arts arena. This is sometimes evident in his art expressions, and his performances are often by audience translated to political actions. Rosvik describes: ?The background to my art productions can partly be interpreted through the expressions and interpretations of contradictions.?

Rosvik deals with exploration of aesthetic sharpness and quality, varieties of artistic skills and expression, the tension between the stable and mobile, the ugly and beautiful, the familiar and the unexpected. As he himself puts it: "Really it's an issue of life perspective, expressions of what it means to be human. Humble life of self-denial has been always an ideology of the well-off and comfortable culture. I want to create mirrors as distorting actions, but still reflective".
