The Light Between Us by angrymikko The Light Between Us by angrymikko
There's currently a group exhibition in AVA Galleria called "Light and Shadow"  it's on Pohjoinen Rautatiekatu 17 B 8 in Helsinki. If you're in Finland please go and see it. 

The process of getting the artwork done was honestly a lot more work than I thought. Since all artists have only 4 pieces there i wanted to be sure the ones I chose would work as a cohesive theme together. 
The Light Between Us was finished for a long time and I only cut it out during the last month because another ink drawing took it's place.

This one was hard because I knew the texture I wanted to surround the main subject but a bathroom floor filled with ink splatter tests didn't produce any results I wanted. The water droplets were just too big for what I had in mind. The answer came to me one day when I was on my way to work and  I rubbed some dirt on a a3+ paper that I then hairsprayed to stick to it long enough so I could get it to a working scanner.  Now it looks the way I saw it in my head and I feel good that I didn't settle for something else. 

The whole exhibition experience has been great and I definitely plan on doing it again at some point but it's a VERY expensive process so don't think I'm just lazy if it takes a while.

This is absolutely incredible. I love the atmosphere in the picture and the brush strokes and splatters are beautiful. I think the inversion creates a really unique feel here. The composition is wonderful and works great in the square format. I gotta admit I instantly thought this is a piece I would put on my wall if I could. I'll definitely consider getting a print at least!
