About the artwork
Runner-up: Finnish travel poster of the year, 2021
The artist presents her artwork:
Many travel magazines that I’ve been collecting for several years have been very helpful for me. They always take me to Finland and give me inspiration. When I found a photo of a nostalgic beach in Hanko, I imagined how happy I would be if I could spend relaxing time there. Hanko is now on my bucket list.
Surely travel posters can’t simply remain a cry from the past?
Absolutely not. We live in a completely visual world where the picture is stronger than ever. That’s why the following question hit us: How would contemporary artists depict Finland of today?
We could not let that thought go, so since 2016 we continuously arrange international travel poster contests and we’ve also asked specific graphic designers and artists to create new Finnish travel posters for us.
So now Finland once again attracts travellers with glamour and cries of joy from paradise. With the help of the travel poster!
