GUEST ARTISTS and VISITING ARTISTS
Krunikan Leima offers guest spots for travelling artists from few days to a week or two. Every year we have had new and old guests from all over the Europe coming to our studio including artists like Monika Boo (Lithuania), Catherina Gynt (Italy), Candy Ink (Poland), Evil Yvonne (Poland) and Sice (Spain). We also offer spots for those wanting to work in Helsinki more than once or twice a year.
What comes to resident artists, we definitely want to find a good solution for great artists who fit into our team and want to work in Krunikan Leima on more regular basis. If we aren’t able to offer full-time positions, we definitely can arrange part-time spots.
Taking an apprentice into our studio requires commitment and time from us and arranging everything so the apprentice would have a proper education is not the easiest thing to do. We usually take new apprentices every 4-5 years, last being in 2016 and now new ones in 2021 (spots filled already).
