Technique : Mixed media
Born in 1994, Sandra Wallin, known as Sandy Bee, grew up in an environment where culture and art were in abundance, in the heart of the Finnish Archipelago (a group of islands). In 2017, once Sandy had her Bachelor degree in hand, she decided to leave for Paris and continue her studies in textile design at Olivier de Serres ENSAAMA. Her interest in painting flourished under the supervision and advice of her teachers there. After her textile training, Sandy devoted herself entirely to painting. She began to experiment and creating works in her studio, in the suburbs of Paris. Drawing inspiration from her life in Paris, Sandy’s sensitivity and freedom of creation, was found in the depiction of everyday situations captured on transit and on the streets. Its purpose was to expose hidden messages from our life, our environment and our society.
Sandy’s greatest sources of inspiration are Keith Haring, Jean Dubuffet and David Hockney. Her style is childish, mundane, striking and easily recognizable. Sandy likes to call her style Sandyism: her work is defined by its contour lines and strong use of colours and shapes. Sandy creates a playground in which she plays with symbols and codes.
