More art posts coming up!
-because we need more art in our lives, more art on our walls, and art should be easily accessible.
Those were the thoughts of two of my friends, comic artist, illustrator and gallerist Aiju Salminen and producer Saara Konttinen, who thus opened up their own gallery. Online. They wanted to make a gallery with art by contemporary artists, a gallery that would not be the kind that you might dread stepping into, but accessible by anyone anywhere and with art that could be described as strange and fun and easy to approach. So Tabulaland was born. I’ve said it before, I love it when I see talented people I know have a great idea and are able to make it happen just the way they want it!
So what to put on my wall then? Let's look at a few different works.
Ilkka Luttinen: Graveyeard, oil on canvas (300x197cm)
Sami Viljanto: What Would George Lazenby Do? Poster.
Katri Sipiläinen: Snall as Blood, water-colour on paper.
The store and gallery has been up and running for about two months now and an international version of the site (in English) will be available soon.
To enter the give away visit Tabulaland.com and leave me a comment on this post, telling me which piece from Tabulaland you would like to have on your wall. Or which piece is your favourite - when it comes to art I often find I like many pieces without necessarily being able to picture me having it on my own walls or in the house.
Note that if you do not have a site or account linked trough your signature you must be sure to leave me your contact details so I can readh you.
I will draw the winner randomly on the last of this month; November 30!
