Blue and Red – Two Journeys:
Nanna Susi & Canal Cheong Jagerroos
Nanna Susi is one of the most internationally successful Finnish artists known for her expressionistic, colourful paintings. Canal Cheong Jagerroos is a Chinese artist who combines traditional Chinese art with western style in her own unique way. In 2015, the two artists started a project called Blue and Red and travelled together across Finland and China. The works in the exhibition are inspired by their journey.
