Petra Eriksson x Face This

Artist Petra Eriksson

It’s April! And for our brand new collab we teamed up with artist Petra Eriksson. Born in Stockholm and based in Eindhoven, Petra is an incredible artist who likes to work with bright colors and a mix of organic and graphic shapes. Brands like VICE, Buzzfeed, The New Yorker and Oscar/The Academy Award love her art. So at Face This we’re proud she took the time to collaborate with us as well. We spoke with her about how she experienced this collab and how our Indonesian kids’ drawings inspired her. ‘I think play is the key for any artist or non-artist to cultivate and feed their inner child.’ 

Indonesian kids' drawings

To create her drop, the artist made use of childrens drawings made by the students of the Duduk Atas school in Indonesia. And the proceeds will be used to support the school with a new playground and a rainwater tank underneath it.

" I really enjoy getting the chance to use my art to contribute to projects like these that creates a positive change. I also really liked the idea of taking inspiration by the drawings of these kids. "

I loved the personality of the different characters, they were so expressive. I also felt very drawn towards the flowers and plants that were occurring in many of the drawings, I felt like they had a specific significance that I didn’t understand and I liked that it felt like a beautiful mystery.
