Tuulikki Pietilä (1917–2009) was a Finnish artist and one of the most influential names of Finnish graphic arts of the 20th century. From 1955 Pietilä’s life partner was the Finnish artist and author Tove Jansson, who is best known for her Moomin books. Together they collaborated on many art projects, and the Moomin characters had a significant role in Pietilä's work as an artist.
Pietilä studied art in several different schools and countries, including drawing schools in Helsinki and Turku, Stockholm’s University College of Arts, Crafts and Design and the Fernand Léger Art Academy in Paris. Pietilä had an experimental attitude towards different techniques and styles, and she also worked as a teacher in the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki. In 1963 Pietilä was awarded the Pro Finlandia medal, and in 1982 she received the title of professor. Pietilä’s oeuvre of over 1400 works has been bequeathed to Helsinki’s Ateneum Art Museum.
