KOL is a Stockholm/London based art project founded in 2019 by sisters Janina and Rosanne Ejenstam. Growing up in a very creative and project-loving family has left clear traces and they have always shared a strong love and interest for art, design and interior design. Today both sisters are working in different creative industries.
Janina studied store design and marketing and is currently working as store planner for Swedish giant IKEA. She has, since she was little, always loved creating with her hands, whether it’s painting on big canvases, spinning the wheel in pottery or decorating her home.
Rosanne has always been more drawn towards the digital. She got a background in graphic design and fashion as well as a keen interest in photography and interior design. Today she lives in London working in creative production and event management.
The idea of creating a project together started to form in early 2019. After through all their lives creating on their own, in their own ways, both sisters realised how their artistic skills and backgrounds could compliment each other if they joined forces. And, just like that "KOL Stockholm" was in the making! The founding idea of the brand would be based on offering exclusive product (handmade designs, in limited editions) to an affordable price, which led us to focus on posters. The range will further expand to original art works on canvas or fine-art paper as well as custom orders.
Scandinavian influences are evidently persistent through the designs, offering nordic minimalism but with a bolder approach. All designs are made by hand and then transformed into digital prints through scanning, photography and the use of other digital tools and editing programs.
