Chris Haggqvist

Tiny Portraits, Big Connections is a work of community. I created one 4″x4″ portrait every day for 100 days straight. My intention was to create some connection between my art and the subjects; to create a community of people who may not be related in normal life, but by having their portraits drawn, they become part of a voluntary community.

I hoped to create a new sense of belonging, and I do know in fact that some of the participants met one another through the project. I’m glad to present the portraits together as they are meant to be shown: to display both the individuals and the collective community they have become.”
