Geoffrey Lillimon – the art of contrast

The first time you meet Geoffrey you are amazed by his extravaganza style of fashion and his way of thinking about VR. First and foremost Geoffrey is a visual artist with a punk attitude towards work and life. Apocalyptic cat portraits, forests and an aqua-acoustics in his house are only a few things Geoffrey enjoys creating on the side.

What does painting have to do with VR software? Why Geoffrey doesn’t create separation between his work and side projects? Why continues contrasts are important to the way of making art? What was the challenge in creating Bitmap Banshees?

We dive into Geoffrey Lillimon surreal world and learn about taking inspiration from the opposite of what’s expected.

Cecilia Pignocchi – The Oogman

The Oogman (the one-eyed man) is a character that has attracted quite a bit of attention around Amsterdam. Who is the mysterious graffiti artist behind it? Well, we meet with Cecilia Italian born graffiti artist and we hear her story of how she created this character. We discuss where she finds inspiration and how she chooses her topics. 

What’s it like to be a female graffiti artist? Why it’s the best way to spend your holiday? How to get motivated if you’re just not “feeling it”? Why graffiti is the best way to make people think for a second?

We chat with artist Cecilia Pignocchi about how to find your own style and why sometimes you need to force yourself to do your passion projects.

Andrew Duncan – the art of being idiotic

I remember seeing a picture of The Kennedys a few years ago with a guy in a bright red suit. That was Andrew Duncan known as Andy. He really does leave an impression once you meet him, both in his unique sense of style and personality. One day Andy told me about his side project – clowning. I had to interview him. Andy agreed if we did the interview up a tree. Yes. Up a tree!

Do you need a red nose to do clowning? Why is it important to play in your own shit? What is the most embarrassing thing that happened to Andy? Who are The Duncan brothers? And why are we up a tree?

We sit in a tree with Andy and chat about his comedy performances and dive back to childish behaviours.
