collaboration ARKET and Linnéa Andersson
artist Linnéa Andersson
Linnéa Andersson (b. 1989) is a visual artist and illustrator based in Gothenburg, Sweden, exploring the intersection of art and design. Her signature motif of sinuous branch and leaf textures painted in rich ultramarine blue runs as a red thread through her compositions. Colours and shapes are influenced by Scandinavian design as well as the psychedelic era and her choice of media, ranging from gouache on paper to sprayed murals on interior walls and facades, represents a constant means of claiming space. Often assuming a gender perspective in her works, Linnéa Andersson uses the plant motif to convey thoughts and emotions without the need to depict bodies, thus inviting anyone to relate to her images in their own way.
