Berberie

Berberie (in right below) is another story from the whole UHANALAISET bunch. It’s not based on a one exact painting but instead on a series of paintings called Girls (Good heavens!) from the modern artist Katja Tukiainen from 2010. I found such a wonderful photograph of barbary macaque (which was my endangered muse in Berberie) resting one leg up so I knew I wanted to use that pose and create an additional painting to Tukiainen’s girly series. Tukiainen is known not only for her paintings but her comics and illustrations. Berberie was done with acrylics on a 50cm x 50cm canvas. There is about five more days to see all the paintings in the UHANALAISET exhibition in Karhulinna in the Korkeasaari Zoo in Helsinki so hurry up 🙂Berberie_elli-maanpaa_Uhanalaiset_2015 Berberie_elli-maanpaa_Uhanalaiset_2015_2Berberie_elli-maanpaa_Uhanalaiset_2015
