Cursing hedgehog's 20th anniversary exhibition at Savonlinna Kulttuurikellari 17.-20.8.!
Milla Paloniemi's beloved, well-known cartoon character Cursing Hedgehog turns 20 this year. For this exhibition, Paloniemi has created scenes from the life of a hedgehog in here and now as an adult. The paintings are done with the marker wash technique, which the artist learned 20 years ago when he started studying graphic design. The jagged and tattered track suits the hedgehog's lively personality.
