I don’t know about you, but I always get a huge rush when I go into an art supply shop… so imagine how I felt when I found these!
In 2006, Helsinki based artist Jonna Pohjalainen spent the summer at the Environmental Art workshop of the Open Air Art Museum in Pedvale, Latvia. She arrived there supply-less and with an open mind. Everyday she would sit quietly taking in the rural landscape, sharpening her pencils and watching the sun set. Really, what else could she do but turn these grey aspen logs into an enormous, beautiful, art-supply-rush-inducing sculpture, titled Colour Pencils.
