Launching Papertint in New York

Papertint is an art brand I created as an outlet for sharing my abstract art with the world. Painting has been my passion project for a few years, ever since I got a pack of acrylic paints as a gift in Finland. I kept experimenting every day after work and really enjoyed the process. Finland is the place where my inspiration started, but soon I realised that where I was located didn’t matter. I wanted to paint everywhere I lived or traveled to.

Painting is so much about emotion, and each artwork has a story that’s connected to a good feeling created by a moment in time and space. In Finland I was surrounded by a lot of darkness in winter and I wanted to counteract that feeling by painting with vibrant colors. I wanted the paintings to create positive energy around me. Finnish summer nights are lovely because they are long and bright and that’s another time when creativity is found again.

Almost 9 months ago me and my husband moved to New York temporarily and I continued painting here. I was fascinated with the amount of art materials you can get in New York (I love Blick Art Materials) and I filled our apartment with canvases and paint tools. Soon after I realised I wanted to create an art brand to share everything I had painted. That’s how Papertint was born. I started building an online store with Shopify in order to make the paintings available to everyone around the world and on June 10 I had a launch event in Manhattan. I’m grateful for all the people I met here who encouraged me to do this. The journey will continue with more paintings every day and art shows in more locations around the world. Stay tuned for updates!
