The Works of Finland's Riikka Sormunen

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 20, 2012
We just came across Finnish artist Riikka Sormunen's work this morning, and just in time, as the artist just released a new book, Big Mother, through Nobrow Press. A mixture of classic illustration, fashion, with a hint of symbolist style, Sormunen gives us a new favorite from the Northern Europe region. We need to get this book.
