About the Art:
Maria Persson finds inspiration in street art to create drawings, prints and designs. Through symbolic motifs and expressive lines and colours, Persson exposes in her creations a more idealized version of our society, which is in direct conflict with reality. Through illustrative figures, expressive lines and fine colours, Persson can transcend her viewers into a world loaded with positive energy. By making use of symmetry and by taking inspiration from street art, Persson delves into a utopian society which is in direct contradiction with our real world. Her creations often build bridges between rationality and creativity, as she merges different graphic design techniques with aesthetically pleasing visuals.
