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...

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....

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...

Anne Barlinckhoff x Laser 3.14

Conceptual / documentary photographer Anne Barlinckhoff is a young, raw and energetic talent based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. For her latest series she worked together with one of my favourite and most elusive street artists in Amsterdam: Laser 3.14. The poetic writings of Laser are to be found all over the city and his solo-shows never cease to amaze. But even though he’s very present in Amsterdam, few get to know Laser’s true...

Above – Blood diamond

World-citizen and international street-artist Above never fails to get our attention. Over the years we came to learn that Above is far more than the arrow pointing upwards; he also points his arrows at the crazy mishaps taking place on this globe, and on a global scale. During his current stay in South-Africa he has made a point on blood-diamonds... and how! He hijacked a 100 meter wall from a diamond trading center telling them he'd...

MTO – Douce France

Berlin based, French bred graffiti artist MTO has published an old series in the lights of the French elections of 2012. These paintings that should’ve been part of a larger series never saw the light of day due to a collaboration halt. The topics are as relevant as ever though. Police brutality against Roma’s is not unheard of in France, and actually has been an active target point of Amnesty international....
