My second guest today in the new series Art in Your Home, I truly hope you like seeing how artists from all over the world display their own art in their homes. Claire Nereim started last week and today I have the pleasure to introduce... or perhaps no introduction needed ... to Hanna Konola, a Finnish freelancer in the field of illustration, design and art... and who's I'm loving for a long time.
Art in the home of Hanna Konola
A: Art means to me… better being, feeling.
R: Reading books / blogs / magazines ... Last two books I've read are Rui Tenreiros Metsän pidot (Høytiden) and Paul Auster's Leviathan. With blogs it's interesting to be connected around the world and to find new things.
T: Trends I see in art or graphic design are… there must be so many kinds of trends going on in different areas and with different people. I find a lot of the same shapes and forms and colours and motifs around that I work with myself. It's interesting to think where these trends come from.
A: Artists I admire are... people who just try to be themselves.
N: Never will I ...
D: Dreams for my own work are about... so many kind of things I want to work with, textiles, books, illustrations, exhibitions.. I just hope I will be busy working and enjoying it.
P: Projects I'm currently working on are... my final thesis, a poster workshop, drawing/making pictures and making plans.
R: Relaxing I do at / when / if... walking, baking, in a good company, swimming, drawing (not always relaxing)
I: Interesting art-places online are... to name one: ok-do
N: New in my home is... i just painted an old dressing table, so it became a little bit new.
T: Tomorrow I like to go to... Berlin!
S: Studio, my studio is... my home at the moment
