Description

The Artek 85 Anniversary poster features a painting, by Finnish artist Karoliina Hellberg, of a detail of Alvar and Aino Aalto's home in Helsinki, Finland. Depicting two Riihitie flowerpots, designed by Aino Aalto, the painting elegantly captures Aaltos’ attention to detail and how they regarded the garden as one of the rooms of the house.

The original artwork, "Garden as a Room", was born after Hellberg’s visit to The Aalto House, the former home of architects and Artek co-founders, Alvar and Aino Aalto, that now functions as a museum. The artist sketched details of the home’s garden, in particular, where her attention was drawn to the flowerpots standing on the terrace – only later did she find out that they were from Aino Aalto’s pen and nowadays part of Artek’s assortment. The original artwork was created using mixed media: watercolours, acrylic paints and ink.

Karoliina Hellberg

The artist Karoliina Hellberg (born 1987) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts of the Uniarts Helsinki in 2015 and has also studied at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Art in London. Her works have been exhibited both in Finland and abroad, including solo exhibitions at the Didrichsen Art Museum and the Ham Helsinki Art Museum, among others. In 2018, Hellberg was awarded the Didrichsen Art Museum’s Pro Arte Award.

In Hellberg’s works, real-life observations and imaginary elements blend into a narrative artwork, transporting the viewer to the frontiers of memory and imagination. The artist’s drawings and paintings often feature a room or building that combines components of different people, stories, moods, and time levels, either in a real place or in a completely fictional location — or somewhere in between.
