Eläintarhassa asusteleva Varis haaveilee muutosta Satakielien puuhun, joka on puitteiltaan koko eläintarhan hulppein.

Elli Maanpää, Kuvaaja: Fabrik 2020

HELENE20-taidetukiprojekti tallentaa korona-aikaa taiteen avulla. Koronakevät on ollut ahdistava, jopa lamauttava. Se on silti tarjonnut myös inspiroivia mahdollisuuksia. Niistä yhtenä on Helsinki Hospitalin HELENE20-taidetukiprojekti. TULEVAISUUDEN TAITEILIJAT Kuusi nuorta taiteilijaa valittiin 114 hakijan joukosta HELENE20-projektiin. Minun lisäkseni taiteilijat ovat Emilio Mäkipää, Janne Jääskeläinen, Aura Latva-Somppi, Marika Schulze ja Alma Peltola. Me teemme kesän aikana itsenäisesti taideteoksen

Painting Portfolio Update

Contemporary Painting Portfolio Update, Elli Maanpää. 2020

I UPDATED MY PAINTING PORTFOLIO I added lots of NEW ART from 2020 and 2019 to my painting portfolio. I’ve been quite productive especially with painting on recycled stuff and portraits.

Memories From My E-Travels

MEMORIES FROM MY E-TRAVELS Elli Maanpää 2020 // 9 acrylic paintings on recycled dia slides I love travelling in IRL (in real life) but the price the Earth has to pay for it is too high. In this painting series I wanted to offer an alternative way to travel. We can still be inspired by exotic

LOOP: THE BIPOLARITY OF CREATIVITY Elli Maanpää 2020 // Acrylic painting on 4 canvases I studied visually the bipolar nature of creative life.

OBJECTS REIMAGINED Elli Maanpää 2020 // Acrylic paintings on stuff I’ve collected these treasures from recycling bins all over Helsinki.
