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....

M. Wriston – Southern Social

Landscape photographer M. Wriston is for our avid followers not an unfamiliar face. In the 2011 interview From Baltimore to Salinas he shared his America with us. He told us about his urge to explore the terrifying but beautiful bayous and swamps of the deep south. Untuck your shirt, hear the mosquitoes and meet the hospitable southern soil....

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...

Fábio Roque – The Cubans

Cuba holds a special place in our hearts. Portuguese photographer Fábio Roque captured daily life on the (still) tranquil pearl in the Caribbean. For me personally it's a sweet trip down memory lane. I traveled the island for a month; lost my wallet, visa, passport and a bottle of fine rum. Got ran over by a horse, can describe the interiors of two police stations, immigration services and the Dutch embassy. Absolutely awesome...

Blek le Rat – Ignorance is Bliss

When I was a kid I always painted and doodled as much as I could for the pure fun of it. Later on in life I started to see the real art side of things and I learnt how art was just another branch from the money tree. I never really became interested in art, for that reason alone, because it seemed so unnatural to paint something only for it to have a price tag put on it at the end. I mean, I wasn't exactly an artist and I never had any...

Jeremy Gibbs

UK based photographer Jeremy Gibbs is part of a special breed of people: The tireless. 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. His latest venture combines photographing obscure and abandoned (urbex) location combined with gorgeous models, and we're not mad at that at all!...

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...
