Leelo-Mai Aunbaum

Tallinn

Leelo-Mai Aunbaum (born 1990) has graduated from the University of Tartu (BA) and Estonian Academy of Arts(MA), both degrees in painting.

Aunbaum is mostly dealing with environmental ethics and anthropology. She questions whether one can alienate from modern society and what are the consequences in doing so.

I get my inspiration mostly by taking long walks in nature. I try to go at least once a day. It helps me to be more productive and also more present at the moment. For me, nature is the best subject and muse. Most of my paintings have started from observations in nature. I love the richness of colours and lines that are seemingly chaotic but also organized at the same time.
