The Stockholm series consists of nine original prints, all

depicting one little corner of the Swedish capital, seen through the eyes of a local (That local is me - Lina!).

Each print is made as a sort of postcard and a snapshot of a Stockholm-life moment.

"The Green Line" Giclée print of an original pen and digital artwork on Fine Art

320 gsm paper. Here depicted framed in a passe-partout and an oak frame with a non reflective glass.

Each print comes with a short message on a postcard. This print is called Gröna Linjen, which means "The Green Line". The message on the postcard reads:

"Hi!

I took the subway from Rådmansgatan to Alvik today. I found a paper on a bench and read your horoscope, lots of luck awaits at the end of the month.

Lina"

This pretty pink picture is called Nordiska Kompaniet - named after the iconic department store in the heart of Stockholm.

Just next to the NK building is a small hotdog stand, a place many Stockholmers have a special relationship with - I personally couldn't imagine a day of shopping without a stop here.

Sturebadet - a true Stockholm sanctuary. Generations of Stockholmers have scrubbed away their sins at this public bathhouse/spa.

The easily recognizable decor in the main pool room always reminded me of a sunrise.

A constant exotic sunrise - all year around.

The "Bonjour Tristesse" is a mini series consisting of three motifs, originally made as a campaign for the s/s 18 shoe collection. They are inspired by Francois Sagan's 1955 novel "Bonjour Tristesse", which mainly depicts the french riviera in its hay day. Sun drenched beaches, cocktails, and lots of effortless glamour.

'Your idea of love is a rather simplistic one. Love isn’t a series of isolated sensations…’ It struck me that that was just what all my experiences of love had been: a sudden surge of emotion at someone’s gaze or gesture or kiss…radiant moments without any underlying connection, that was all the memory I had of them. ‘It’s something different,’ Anne was saying. ‘It’s about constant tenderness, gentleness, missing a person…’ 

- Bonjour tristesse, Francoise Sagan

'As it was every morning, my bed was bathed in sunlight. I pushed back my sheets, took off my pyjama top and turned my bare back to the sun. With my cheek resting on my folded arm, I could see close up the coarse texture of the linen sheet and beyond that, on the tiled floor, the vacillations of a fly. The sun was warm and gentle, it seemed to make my bones expand beneath my skin and to take special care to bestow its warmth upon me.'

- Bonjour tristesse, Francoise Sagan
