Marimekko Artist Series: Landon Metz
The Marimekko Artist Series invites emerging and celebrated artists to collaborate on exclusive Marimekko capsule collections.
The series was introduced to push the art of printmaking into uncharted waters and give creatives a new canvas on which to present their work. Featured artists echo Marimekko’s design philosophy, bold aesthetic, and optimism while offering a fresh lens for viewing art.
This Spring, we want to share a new language with you. One flowing between image, object, and space, created by New York-based artist Landon Metz as part of our Marimekko Artist Series.
Like Marimekko, he’s fascinated by the way things connect to form patterns and moments of intimacy in life. Through swirling pools of colored dye on crisp white fabric, he’s evolved his language of rhythmic gestures with an effortless collection of garments, accessories, and bags, printed exclusively at our Helsinki factory.
