Elina Merenmies art in general :
The point of departure for Merenmies' art is the unconscious spiced with the nightmares and surrealist stories we encounter on a daily basis in the movies, TV and comics.
In her pictures customarily innocent cartoon characters and assorted bright toys are transformed into nightmarish monsters with fangs and blood dripping from their mouths, ripping out the heart of another strange creature.
