Sanna Maria Paananen's artworks are rather subdued oil paintings. Her style is based on the use of a limited palette of two colors and the general approach to figurative painting with a rather heavily simplified overall stylization. Her themes are generally personal viewpoints on larger themes such as feminism and social interaction. Paananen also works in collaboration with painter Tero Ulvila. In these pieces both artists work on a shared canvas with their own, highly contrasting styles.
