Swedish / Cuban / Finnish Recording Artist and Model, Artifex is the face of this globally connected generation. Her music, influenced by 50’s Cuba, urban latino flavors, topped with Scandinavian sounds of pop. A juicy cocktail mix…
The recording artist was born and raised in Sweden, to a Finnish mother and a Cuban father. Her childhood was surrounded by cultural duality, which influences and translates into her music today. "Growing up in a melting pot of culture was the best of both worlds."
She started taking singing seriously at age of 12 performing in jazz festivals and privet events til age of 16. She spent her 3 year studies at Rytmus High School in Malmö, Sweden. After school Artifex would spend time in studios writing songs and recording back-up vocals. Shortly after graduating, she moved to Milan, Italy, to pursue a modeling career. where she worked with designers such as "RedValentino, Etro, Cedric Charlier, BluMarine, Antonio Marras & more..."
Artifex’s return to music occurred when she received an invitation to perform with the National San Marino Orchestra at the Expo Milan 2015.

Her performance at “The Mint La Club” got the attention of the producer LUGO, after honing her skills further with Grammy Nominated R&B star Frankie J, Artifex & Frankie J collaborated and released 3 singles, ”Lo Que Paso , Borron Y Cuenta Nueva and Chillear."
