A collection of prints made in the summer of 2020 after spending a lot of time in my apartment. I made a series of vases and plants inspired by my own and included a new pattern in each print.
I made two different prints in different versions to honor one of my favorite songs of 2020, Heartbreak Weather by Niall Horan, as part of a competition he held. I wrote "Heartbreak weather is a song that I loved the first time I heard it, especially because of the memories it brings out for me. I too have fallen in love in Los Angeles and it really is an amazing place to get to experience that in. I believe Niall perfectly caught the essence of the difference between being alone vs being in love in LA. I identify with this song very strongly and because of that it was easy for me to bring it to life in my own artistic expression."
A selection of prints I created during this time
I was always inspired by California, even before I had even been there myself. When I started making art in 2015 I was studying sustainable design in a rather small city in the middle of southern Sweden and I was always daydreaming about going to Los Angeles. The outcome was these art prints filled with plants and pastel colors.
