The concept behind leikela is not a new one - a gallery displaying artists’ work, however with a twist: the artwork is exclusively done for the gallery, which follows the artistic process and the production so that the client or viewer not only can observe the making of the piece, but can learn how it is made before taking it home. Many of the artists picked by leikela are young and emerging talents: the are given support and in exchange they will show their artistic processes by documenting their creation. The approach to the artwork becomes less about buying and more personal, closer to who might ultimately purchase it.
