Wonder Women - The WAU Project exhibition opened in Helsinki city centre two weeks ago. I am so grateful to have this opportunity to show these 12 works and share the stories of these amazing women in the artworks. So empowering and it's touching to see how some visitors have moved to tears because they feel they can relate to these Wonder Women. The feedback has been absolutely wonderful.
The exhibition has got some nice publicity too! The two Finnish daily newspapers Iltalehti and Iltasanomat wrote about the project and pop star Anna Abreu being one of the models. Yle Puhe interviewed me and we got talking about women and equality, the struggles women still face in today's world and body painting as an empowering art form.
So still one week to go, please come and say hi if you you are around!
Akkuna/ LASIPALATSI, Simonkatu 3, 00100 Helsinki. Open Tue-Fri 12-18 and Sat-Sun 11-16.
The artworks and the Wonder Women -wall calendar 2016 are available for purchase at the exhibition or at Riina Laine Art Store. Part of the proceeds of the sale will be donated to UN Women!
