Linda Linko

Linda Linko (b.1979) is a Helsinki-based visual artist, who creates images that are linked to momentary experience. Using variations of mixed media, she creates expressive paintings with vibrant colour palettes and a play of layers, textures and the fluidity of water. Figures emerge from memory and become strongly, almost pushingly present. Linko’s paintings come from a place of truth and detail. In her own words: ”I paint how I see things”. Over the course of 20 years, she has also become known as an awarded poster designer, typographer, illustrator and textile designer.
