Sandra Kantanen is a photographer based out of Helsinki, Finland who uses a very unique technique to develop her work. Kantanen prints her photographs with similar pigments found in acrylic paints on aluminum plates, then finishing the pieces with varnish. The result is an awesome visual treat turning photography literally into a painting, as she sweeps the wet prints with a brushes to leave visceral brush strokes and paint lines.
Kantanen has exhibited her work internationally from Västerås, Stockholm, Leverkusen, Odense, Oslo, Beijing, and St. Gallen.
