How would you describe your style?
We create cutting edge-images displaying aesthetic impressions and critical concepts of the near future.
Which are your main sources of inspiration (artists, graphic designers, etc.)?
Mainly things invisible to the naked eye. We smell them.What would you say about the 2 works exhibited at ArtLigue?
They are both surfaces where the Cobra Art Movement is revived in the folk art of the contemporary digital folklore. The visual statement is an upgrade of the conventional understanding of the Cobra movement. On the surface, the impulsive and intuitive beauty of digital folklore is outshined, and the folk art of today flourishes on the vernacular World Wide Web, all parading with hijacked Cobra creatures. The original artwork is a mural painting commissioned by Cobra Museum Amsterdam. Which was the creative process for these artworks? Does it fit the usual way you work? Does your creative process change according the context (be the project artistic, or commissions etc.)?
Yes: every time we have a commission or self-initiated project we study that subject and carry out excessive research on it. For us, this is the only way to become an expert in visual culture. Even though each image is always custom tailored according to the needs of a given subject, we also have personal periodical fascinations. These two artworks were made in 2012, while we were carried away by folkloric expressions in the streets of the internet.What is your vision of today's graphic design landscape?
We don't really have an opinion about the subject. According to you, is there a border between art and graphic design, are they 2 separated entities ? If so, where do you see the borderline? Should graphic design enter the field of art or is it already part of it?
We think that the word border creates constraints rather than vision.
