Exhibiting Art in Las Palmas

image

This weekend I am exhibiting a monotype in Las Palmas at Gran Canaria Art Gallery together with several other artists. It is such an honour to be invited to display my art at this joint summer exhibition. 22nd of july to 29th of july.

I have finally reached one of my lifegoals to become an international artist. I hope this is one of many cities to come where I will exhibit.

This is the piece I am exhibiting “Himalaya” Monotype, 2016.

Monotyping is a printmaking process with oil on paper. There is only one original.

A couple of talented local artists gave away their paintings to Unga Magasinets charity for the Swedish radio and tv show “MusikHjälpen” tonight! It was super fun. One of my paintings were there too ofcorse and there were a lot of happy winners there and ofcorse a lot of warm hearts that were happy to donate money for children in warzones that still have the right to go to school. ♡
