New Artist Collection: Linnéa Andersson

LINNEA ANDERSSON

Linnéa Andersson, born in 1989, is a visual artist and illustrator based in Gothenburg, Sweden. She took her Master Degree in Design at HDK School of Design and Crafts in 2018 and has already been curated for several exhibitions at galleries and worked with clients such as IKEA, Lush Cosmetics, WRAP Magazine to name a few. Linnéa often work from a gender perspective and moves between art and design.

Living in the same town and having a few common friends, we spotted Linnéa’s work in social media and instantly fell in love. Her street art-like work and colorful organic leave shapes gives an immediate, appealing, visual impact.

For Fine Little Day Linnéa has made three art work in a limited edition of 200.
The first 20 units are signed by the artist.

We popped four questions for Linnéa:

> If someone asks what you do for living, what do you say?
I tell them that I paint! I rarely call myself an artist, even though I try to get myself used to the title since it would be a more efficient way of describing what I do. So: I am an artist.

> How would you describe your art?
Someone described it as Scandinavian minimalism, and I think that pin points it a lot.

> How do you prefer to work?
I use the brush as a tool for investigation. What I then investigate could be a new color combination, a direction or bend or just a new struggle I have wanted to deal with. There have to be a problem to be solved, a maze to find my way out from, or I won’t find my urge to paint. 
A common starting point for me is to write my diary through the shapes that I create. A diary without words, only by lines and color. I paint on whatever I reach. Mostly paper, but also walls, fruits and objects.

> Would you mind share your best instagram accounts for inspiration?
Hard to just pic a few! But some favorites is: (A-Z)
