Anna Salmi: Watermelon Sugar
Specializing in animated and editorial illustrations, Anna Salmi (b. 1992) combines digital and traditional painting techniques in her work. Her illustrations often feature references to pop culture mixed with an imaginary world dominated by pastel colours, glitter and powerful women. Salmi’s solo exhibition Watermelon Sugar features digital prints on textile with embroidered details.
Watermelon Sugar opens to the public on the website of the gallery on Friday, 14 May, at 12 noon. You can browse the exhibition online through pictures, texts and a podcast. One of the works in the virtual exhibition uses AR (Augmented Reality) and it has been made available for viewing through Adobe Aero mobile app. You can also experience the artworks on the spot when Galleria Kuvitus reopens its doors after a long time during the Art Fair Suomi Goes Galleries festival, held from 8–13 June.
