Fox Mask by Tiina-Liisa Kaalamo

Visual artist Tiina-Liisa Kaalamo made me this super cool fox mask! I originally asked her to make me a mask for the PoVintage photos, but now I think I'll use it in my next Po photoshoot once I get the collection ready.

I can't put to words how much I like this mask... The cheeks and eyebrows are so skillfully made and she even manage make the eyes and mouth look incredibly expressive.

At the moment the fox keeps watch on my studio wall but I'm definitely hanging this on our home when I'm done using it for photos.

If you want to see Tiina-Liisa's recent artwork, she has an exhibition called "Matka Faabeliin" (engl. Journey to Fable) on display at  Galleria Uusi Kipinä.  The exhibition includes Kaalamo's furry sculptures and floral and animal themed oil paintings from fellow visual artist Kaisu Kopsa. Their work play together really well. The exhibition is open 18th of September to 10th of October so there's still plenty of time to go and see it. You won't regret it, I promise.

And if you can't make it to the exhibition, you can also get to know Tiina-Liisa's artwork in her homepage here.
