Sveriges Radio interview with artist Bless (in swedish)

Bless talks to swedish radio about her process when creating a mural - starting at home at the drawing table, to applying the painting to a large building. She explains that the time frame when working on a mural always differs depending on motif, technique and the wall itself, but that she prefers to work as if though she doesn’t have a set deadline, to avoid stress.
