The Marimekko Artist Series invites emerging and celebrated artists to collaborate on Marimekko capsule collections.
The series was introduced to push the art of printmaking into uncharted waters and give creatives a new canvas on which to present their work. Featured artists echo Marimekko’s design philosophy, bold aesthetic, and optimism while offering a fresh lens for viewing art.
The latest edition of the Marimekko Artist Series introduces Sabine Finkenauer’s artworks on a range of ceramics and home textile products.
Focus on simplicity and bold shapes inspired by geometry
A German artist based in Barcelona, Sabine Finkenauer, is celebrated for her geometrically accurate and rhythmic artworks that use simple everyday subjects and shapes to create a meticulous interplay of representative and abstract expression. Finkenauer’s equally exquisite and approachable art pieces are created by hand using vividly colored oil pastels and a variety of techniques.
An artist originally specialized in sculpture, Finkenauer’s works are regularly showcased at galleries and institutions in Europe, the United States, and South America. Her artistic method can be defined as a game whose rules the artist establishes by playing and, above all, an aspiration for simplicity, in which she believes the greatest beauty resides. Over the years, all this has crystallized into a vocabulary of simple and bold shapes inspired by geometry.
The capsule collection is showcased at Milan Design Week
A week-long exhibition launches the Sabine Finkenauer collaboration in Milan during Milan Design Week. The entire creative process, from artwork sketches to final products, is showcased in a conceptual and abstract installation.
