TOVE AND TUUTI

Elli Maanpää 2020 // 2 acrylic paintings on cotton canvas pad

After I painted the first Tove Jansson I got requests to make another one. This time she was hoped to be accompanied by her life partner Tuulikki Pietilä. Tove and Tuuti were both artists. Their atelier apartments were in neighbour buildings in Ullanlinna Helsinki joined by a secret attic hallway. I finished these two paintings just in time to wish happy International Family Equality Day on May 3rd 2020. 

The limited edition art prints of these paintings are sold out.
