Linnea Andersson | Earth Hour Artist Interview

Tell us about yourself?

Artist living in Gothenburg, Sweden. I’ve been working as an artist since 2017, and it’s my full-time job which I’m very thankful for. Before that I studied both BFA and MFA in Design. What makes me smile is: Dogs, friends, great (vegetarian) food. If I could I would get a puppy tomorrow. But I’m also fine with making my family and friends a good dinner. :)

 

What’s the title of your art piece?

One (1)


What’s the meaning/thinking behind your art piece?

What I try to communicate in my piece is that we all need too work together to protect the one and only place and planet that we call home. The branches represents us, that gathers around our sphere, holding on of what’s left.


Describe your style in 3 words.

Bold colourful minimalism


Who's on your playlist while working on this project?

I’ve been listening to my favourite band Tennis that recently released their new album Swimmer on repeat.


Where & what will you be doing at this year’s Earth Hour on 28th March 2020?

Sweden is still quite dark this time of year, so I will lit a lot of candles and read this months book club-book and have some snacks :)


If you could change one thing in this world, what would it be and why?

Without sounding too much like Miss Universe I would like some world peace. I think that is a good start for many other great tasks that needs to be solved in this world. But it is hard to just pick one.
