“Picture Pippi Longstocking and swedish movie director Ingmar Bergman having a love child. That’s me.”
Mia Mäkilä is one of those artists that manage to catch you off guard.
I don’t even remember now how I came across her work. I bookmarked it, figuring I might go back if I “had the time.”
Meanwhile, those distorted cartoonish figures have been haunting me. Her work is unique; you can see a piece and instantly know it’s hers. She uses bright comic colours, but the darkness still manages to seep through.
It gives me the most delicious chills.
