Mikko Lagerstedt – Atmospheric Photography

When browsing, you're never more than two clicks away from something beautiful. I'm not sure which two mindless clicks lead me to the epic Landscape photography by Finnish photographer Mikko Lagerstedt, but I'm glad they did! Mikko has been photographing since 2008 and since then quickly grew into landscape photography. By dedicating himself to taking his photos at the most gorgeous times of day, he knows to capture a perfect light (or...

Astro graffiti – Turbulences

Followers of CFYE know I'm a big fan of Parisian artist ASTRO (ODV crew). Together with fellow artist Kanos he has continuously impressed me with beautiful murals, clever concepts like Cellograff and awesome video-productions edited by Kanos. What I didn't know, and nobody else for that matter, is that Astro has been secretly working on his first canvas works....

Fraser Gray

There's not much work I'd describe as 'the collision between a unicorn and a rainbow exploding in my head'. There are even less artists that reply to this with "yeah, they tell me that more often'. Fraser Gray does though, and if you've seen his work you won't even be surprised. His work is oh so sharp, crisp and clean. Yet some of his works are also such a visual explosion you can't help it feel that you're watching some elaborate...

In our first interview in 2009 we've learned he has done all kinds of photography, movie editing and even custom qee making and seems to have the ability to be outstanding in all of it.

A ‘Mooiemuur’ Mural in Beirut

Dutch Graffiti artist Roy Valk a.k.a. KARSKI hasn't been properly introduced to yet (even though I have an elaborate interview that needs to be transcribed lying around, any volunteers?) but I couldn't pass up showing you the results of one of his latest projects. As we've collaborated with Roy in the past (CFYE at the Revelry, Graffiti Keuken video) we know that Roy works with a professionalism that is hard to match. It wouldn't...

Unek Francis – Fashion photographer

In 2009 we came across the sexy body art / graffiti on girls pictures created by Unek Francis, aka Mr.Unek. As both his graffiti/ body art work and his photography was stunning we had more than enough reasons for an interview with Unek. In that interview we learned about his native American roots and that he grew up doing graffiti which led him to a career as illustrator / graphic designer and finally sparked him to pick up his camera...

George Raggett

George Raggett, what can I tell you about this kid? Really..I don’t know! What I do know is that he’s been an avid CFYE supporter from the get-go, I know he moved from the UK to Germany to live with a gorgeous redhead named Donna. I know he’s one of the funniest people I’ve never met (and I can tell you, there’s a lot of funny people I’ve never met!) and I know he has a very bright future as an illustrator, cartoonist or...

Life Framer – Photography competition

Let's face it, (almost) everyone can pick up a camera and shoot some decent photographs with it. But it's not until you get out of your shell to let your work be judged by someone else than by the always positive Facebook crowd when you start pushing boundaries. Life Framer is an organisation aiming to push artists to such boundaries with an international award and exhibition for any photographer that is interested. The award is by...

Lloyd Stubber – Colourblind

For the series 'Colourblind', Melbourne-based and Perth native photographer Lloyd Stubber has documented his three month solo trip through San Francisco, Nevada, New York, Scotland, Belgrade, Luthuania and Moscow. This makes for an eclectic mix of pictures which still comes across like a series that could've been made in the same state. We were intrigued and wanted to know a little bit more about Mr. Stubber! "I am prone at getting...

Laser 3.14

An in-depth interview with the most illusive Street artist of Amsterdam

Born and raised in Amsterdam, it is with right we call artist Laser 3.14 our home-grown hero. The mysterious Laser 3.14 is best known for his poetic graffiti texts that can be found all around Amsterdam. "Fasten your seatbelts, we're going nowhere" or "Orwell dreamed up 1984, we did the rest" are some of Laser's texts that can be read on wooden boards, construction trailers and other less permanent materials on the streets of...
