Art in Your Home :: Hanna Konola


My second guest today in the new series Art in Your Home, I truly hope you like seeing how artists from all over the world display their own art in their homes. Claire Nereim started last week and today I have the pleasure to introduce… or perhaps no introduction needed … to Hanna Konola, a Finnish freelancer in the field of illustration, design and art… and who's I'm loving for a long time.

Art in the home of Hanna Konola

A: Art means to me… better being, feeling.

R: Reading books / blogs / magazines … Last two books I've read are Rui Tenreiros Metsän pidot (Høytiden) and Paul Auster's Leviathan. With blogs it's interesting to be connected around the world and to find new things.

T: Trends I see in art or graphic design are… there must be so many kinds of trends going on in different areas and with different people. I find a lot of the same shapes and forms and colours and motifs around that I work with myself. It's interesting to think where these trends come from.


A: Artists I admire are… people who just try to be themselves.

N: Never will I …

never say never..

D: Dreams for my own work are about… so many kind of things I want to work with, textiles, books, illustrations, exhibitions.. I just hope I will be busy working and enjoying it.


P: Projects I'm currently working on are… my final thesis, a poster workshop, drawing/making pictures and making plans.

R: Relaxing I do at / when / if… walking, baking, in a good company, swimming, drawing (not always relaxing)


I: Interesting art-places online are… to name one: ok-do

N: New in my home is… i just painted an old dressing table, so it became a little bit new.

T: Tomorrow I like to go to… Berlin!

S: Studio, my studio is… my home at the moment
