Born in Stockholm and based in Barcelona, Petra Eriksson is an Illustrator whose work is littered with eclectic references she picked up along the way, in her artistic journey.
Petra studied Graphic Design at the renowned Bergs School of Communication, an education that’s led her to always strive to solve problems in a creative brief. Working predominantly in Adobe Illustrator, Petra creates bold imagery awash with big bright colours and anchored with strong compositions.
Slightly exhausted at the moment but at the same time happy about all the great things happening. Can't wait to go on vacation soon though and spend my days eating ice cream, hiding away in the forest and checking some titles of my long "books to read"-list. . . . #petraerikssonstudio #illustration #sneakers #dontlookback
When she’s not working, Petra Eriksson spends her time watching Studio Ghibli films, visiting Natural History Museums and bemoaning the Mediterranean climate for being too warm to drink tea. She has created Illustrations for Blend Studio, VICE, BuzzFeed, Calera Studio, Lucky Peach, Wired UK, Refinery29, Berghs School of Communication. She is a Founding member of HER Barcelona, a part of HER Global Network.
