01.    Biography

Linda Linko (b. 1979) is a visual artist based in Helsinki. With a focus on painting and drawing, her expressive works share a distinct and recognizable touch. Exploring themes like the fleeting nature of experience, the passage of time, and inevitability, she approaches these subjects through both figurative and abstract methods. She describes her style as "colorful melancholia."
