Johanna Lonka (born 1975) is a visual artist working with various media in Tampere, Finland. Main techniques of her work include installation, drawing, sound and video. Beside wandering around forests and studio caves, she also works as an organizer inside artists collectives.


Looped soundpatterns appear occasionally in her sculpture installations, that present endangered species from the earth, water, toystores and above. Together with Jonna Karanka, they founded improvization based psych folk group Kukkiva Poliisi in 1999. The 'blooming' quintet was active until 2007 but later spread merely into it's members solo projects. Currently Lonka is exploring with her own project JoyLaav; an Ep Laavumaa will be released out there on a some sligthly rainy day during this decade.
