In the words of the artist:

I am originally from China and came to Finland for studies in 2016.

As a nature lover, I heard the name of Lake Saimaa even before I came to Finland. I was always looking forward to visiting Saimaa since I moved to Finland, and I finally made it in 2017. I have been to Lake Saimaa three times in the year and visited the cities including Imatra, Savonlinna and Lappeenranta. All of the journeys were exciting and unforgettable.

The poster illustrates a lovely autumn scenery of Lale Saimaa. It is inspired by the enjoyable journey that I had cycling from Lappeenranta to Taipalsaari. Throughout the journey, I was impressed by the vast lake, the maze of islands, the colourful cottages, the waved layers of autumn trees and the peaceful life at the lake.
