VEERA SORRI (1995, Turku)
I'm a self-taught artist based in Helsinki, Finland. I work with acrylic and spray paint to create my odd colorful portraits. I love surrealism, big contrasts and weird details and try to incorporate those in my work too.
Sometimes art feels very serious or hard to understand, but I believe it doesn't have to be like that. I'm not trying to say anything through my art and there are no stories or special meanings behind my paintings. I paint simply because I love it. Of course I hope to keep evolving as an artist, and maybe some day (when I'm older and smarter) I will be able to make statements through my art but for now I just paint weird, colorful things that are fun to make and fun to look at and I think there is value in that too. (Maybe that is a statement?!?)
Anyways, I hope you enjoy my art as much as I do!
