Surprising and original – contemporary art of Finland! Four bright stamps unveiled…

May 23rd, 2016

Finnish contemporary art boasts with its originality and unusual forms – from abstract to the most sophisticated ones. is glad to inform our readers that Posti will highlight Finnish contemporary art in a set of four 1st class stamps. The Art Post II miniature sheet is an extension to the fall 2015 set of stamps. The artists of the stamps are Ville Andersson and Eeva-Riitta Eerola.

The stamps were originated from Nick Cave's ballad Love letter. The sensitive, hopeful atmosphere of the song shows how much emotion a letter can contain. With the stamps, I want to urge everybody to continue this beautiful tradition: writing letters to each other, Andersson says.

In painting, I am fascinated by the way in which a painting allows experiencing things and simultaneously interpreting it in many ways. I hope that these stamps will increase people's interest in contemporary art and more broadly in our visual culture, Eerola says.
