The piece was created in the autumn of 2020 on the premises of Aki PopUp, Helsinki's hottest dining experience this season. All colors are made from ingredients used in Aki's kitchen, with a focus on ecology and waste materials. The colors have been made by Toni Toivanen and the painting has been made by Jaakko Mattila, adding a new pigment on a weekly basis. The work is a unique one of a kind piece and is signed on the back.
The nature of an artwork made with natural food-based pigments is that it will change over time. The lightfastness and other qualities that usually apply to paintings are uncertain in a unique piece like "Ympyrä Maalla".
