Catching up with Pip

It's been a few years (2011) since we've last had a chat with London based photographer Pip. I wasn't only impressed by Pip's fantastic portfolio, but also by the fact that this young photographer is completely self-taught. That's right: no school, no study, not even serving as an assistant. Pip just picked up a camera and started snapping pics of his friends who were aspiring musicians or models, all in preparation for bigger and...

Monica Hee Eun

"I like it when art gives you a strong blow to the gut" is what Monica Hee Eun says. Well that's just what her work did to me. Big, textured, violent brusshtrokes depicting scenes that would be difficult to explain to your grandparent. Yet it's the taboo and exploring of boundaries (when is art explicit? They're just brush and pencil-strokes after all) that is endlessly intriguing. More than enough reasons to get to know the artist...

Ron English

It's extremely difficult to find Art these days unless you know where to look. You'd probably go through hours of research in order to find an artist you could actually share a connection with and then buy a piece of art that you'd truly admire. I personally enjoy looking for artists that I know will reward me in my efforts with great artwork but sometimes the Artist isn't too difficult to find because of the things they have painted...

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...

Jeremy Fish

So, Jeremy Fish was my most recent victim. I first saw his work when I was about 19 years old and in my skull drawing phase, a phase majority of young illustrators go through probably after or before the eye ball phase. Jeremy's work caught my eye because it was so sharp and bold and I hadn't seen anything like it back then. I usually wouldn't personally class this type of design as art but I believe that art is also defined by who...
