For the next editions of TRANOÏ, we are very excited to have the paintings of artist Emma Larsson as our campaign visuals.
Emma Larsson is a Stockholm-based autodidact artist and sculptor whose imagery touches the boundary between colouristic dreamscapes and melancholy figures. Having previously worked with mostly oil and acrylic, Larsson has devolved into her own expressive abstract water colouring. Larsson also sculpts ceramics where the characteristic figures are lifted from the paper to adopt new living forms.
How would you describe yourself?
I'm my own boss who refuses to fold to the conventions. The rules are in my head.
How and why did you become an artist?
Probably already in my mothers womb. I'd rather call myself an explorer.
What's your mantra?
Don't just exist. Live!
Where did you get your latest inspiration from?
A walk in a virgin forest the other day. Nature and silence...
What advice would you give to a younger version of yourself?
Go for it. No matter how it ends. It was an experience.
