Roller Derby Kisses – When the bruises on thighs become works of art

Roller Derby Kisses is a series of paintings by the Finnish artist Riikka Hyvönen, who turns the bruises on thighs of Roller Derby players into magnificent works of art. Between femininity, violence, passion and aggressivity, Riikka Hyvönen uses the world of roller derby to pay tribute and sublime feminism and team spirit. Her creations are currently on display at the Finnish Institute of London.
