Marikka Kiirikoff (born 1974) is a Helsinki based artist who graduated from Kuvataideakatemia in 2002. She has had various exhibitions in Helsinki: Forum Box, Jangva and TM-gallery to name a few – and is now exhibiting her new painting series “1920” in ARTag Gallery.
“1920” captures the interesting and diverse features of that decade – there is plenty of hope for a brighter future, quest for beauty and of course – style. Esthetical influences from Asia are also present. On the other hand, recovery from the war and confusion about technical advancement are also essential part of the decade.
Marikka Kiirikoff’s 1920 is on display in ARTag Gallery during two weekends – Mar14-15 and Mar21-22, Sat&Sun 12:00-16:00. During the week, please contact Veikko for a private viewing.
