After being locked up in the lab for a while, it's finally there! The long awaited 'Childish Adult' EP by Amsterdam based producer PlutoDash. With full-on focus and dedication PlutoDash has worked hard for his first release since he became an electronic music producer. I have to say the result has been worth the wait. The EP has five delicious tracks which are, track by track, spot-on productions by Plutodash. As icing on the cake the...

Tom French

UK based artist Tom French has been responsible for some of the most jaw-dropping art works I've seen in a while! His skulls, at first look, are beautiful oil paintings. Give them a second look and you'll disocover that there's a whole new level to these skulls which are  actually made up out of people. I think it's this combination of skill, cleverness and emotions that defines the artist Tom French. A combination you'll also find in...

Eska Art

We’ve been doing this CFYE for quite a while now and sometimes I realize that we haven’t featured loads of artists that we’ve been following from the get go. Luckily they haven’t forgotten about us and every once in a while we get a message from people that we’ve been admiring since our creative rebirth. One of these impressive artists we’ve been watching since years is UK based graffiti artist ESKA. He has a curved yet...

Our good friend and talented photographer Richard Terborg and his equally talented girlfriend, designer/illustrator Karin van de Kuilen  followed their dream to find out! With much...

Matteo Bucciol

Inspiring photography is often sparked by thinking about and seeing compositions that other don’t. This is why architecture and photography go together so well; it teaches to see lines, converging points, etc. which work great in photography. A good example of this is architect and photographer Matteo Bucciol, living in Padua, Italy....

Dja’louz – extraordinary

French graffiti artists have been setting the bar for quite a while. While we in the Netherlands have a tradition of readable graffiti or abstract, France artists embraced the wild style and embraced it as their own. One of my personal favourite artists and a prime example of mind-blowing French graffiti is Parisian artist Dja’louz.  Inspired by Arabic and Asian calligraphy, Dja’louz developed a unique 3d style which most of the...

Base Elements Gallery – Barcelona

Barcelona is a magical city and one of the favourite CFYE destinations in Europe. From the amazingly relaxed squares in the Gracia barrio to the immensely crowded Ramblas area, it all has its charm. Of course, there’s another reason why we like Barcelona, and that’s the immense amount of graffiti and outside art you can find in the city. One of the first times we took a walk through Barcelona we were awed by the amount of art to be...

Alice Pasquini – Cinderella pissed me off

The amazing Alice Pasquini has been awing us since we first laid eyes on her works. The Italian artist has a strong style with clear topics; everyday life with a focus on femininity. It only has been a year or so since we’ve heard from her but it seems like her work skyrocketed both on and offline. Since a few days Alice opened a new solo show in the 999 contemporary gallery in Rome called ‘Cinderella pissed me off’, a title...

Jonathan Dy – Multi Faceted

At times you just don't have enough information in one picture. Canadian photographer / painter Jonathan Dy must have thought so as he found out new ways to incorporate information into his photographs in form of multi-flash and reflection pictures. Of course, both techniques aren't new but the way Jonathan has perfected them is impressive, to say the least!...
