Posti's Art award 2022 -mint

Posti's art award for 2022 was presented in April to sculptor Kim Simonsson, whose two sculptures will now be featured on stamps.

The stamps showcase Kim Simonsson's sculptures from 2008 and 2022.

Posti's art award was presented for the sixth time in 2022.In 2017, the art award went to sculptor Jasmin Anoschkin, in 2018 to graffiti artist EGS, in 2019 to fashion designer Mert Otsamo, in 2020 to visual artist Janne Laine and in 2021 to glass artist Alma Jantunen. Stamps are issued as a 10-stamp sheet containing two different domestic no-value indicator stamp designs.


Product description

"On one of the stamps, we'll see the Bubblegum Girlpainted in white, who blows a bubble of bubblegum made of silvered glass with her superpowers. The other stamp will introduce the Sleeping Reading Moss Girl, in which a girl has fallen asleep while reading," says the artist.

Hand-sculpted from ceramics, Kim Simonsson's figures are inspired by popular culture and more traditional art history. Internationally, Simonsson is particularly known for his sculptures depicting fairytale characters with a lively and moss-like green surface.

"The surface structure of the figures is created with nylon fiber, which I transfer onto the sculptures using a special electrostatic technique," Simonsson says.
