VEERA SORRI (1995, Turku)

"Veera Sorri is a self-taught artist based in Helsinki, Finland. She is best known for her canvas originals which use acrylic and spray paint to create enchanting and odd portraiture that juxtaposes sentiment and typography with the detailed aspects of figurative painting.

Her work is instantly recognisable, her signature use of bright colours and uncanny humour gives her pieces a surreal and vibrant edge that feels relentlessly modern and effortlessly unique. She works quickly, never starting with a clear plan, she works on the face element first before taping up and spray painting afterwards."
