About Lyanne
I am a graphic designer based in Amsterdam. My work is conceptual as well as intuitive. I try to tell stories with my works, and to get the viewer into a contemplative state of mind. I believe in a refined way of designing, in which materials and typography are important elements. I like to wander and I’m curious about almost everything.

It's a very small museum in the Hermitage about art made by outsiders. It's also known as 'Art Brut', a name given to it in 1972 by French artist Jean Dubuffet. It simply means that it is art made by people that don't fit in the normal life structure that humans suppose to have. Which can mean that the art is made by people who are in jail, who are ill, have a mental dissability or another way of not fitting into the community. The exhibitions are quite small, so it takes you just around an hour. And the hermitage has a nice canal view.

Kapitaal is a silkscreen workplace where i used to be involved with a lot. After leaving it, I still return quite often for silkscreening, a lecture, exhibitions, a party, or just for good talks.

Hi I’m Luca. I live and work in Amsterdam, from a small atelier full of colors in an old naval warehouse. During my days I draw space rockets, fantastic creatures, imaginary characters and fast cars, turning them into toys.

My works can be described as ‘post-graffiti art’. The approach, attitude and application of my designs are heavily influenced by graffiti and street art. I am fascinated by today’s zeitgeist but am also critical about it. Street art is an art movement in which many inspiring things are happening and where I feel at home. With a spray I can visually express what I cannot do with a pencil. However, I would like to go deeper than the sometimes superficial appearance of graffiti and street art and highlight those aspects that make the viewer think. I would like to express my thoughts visually, either in a clear statement or in an experiment with a still unknown outcome, which can lead to something new.

Popel Coumou lives and works in Amsterdam and studied photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Her work consists out of analog photographs of collaged spaces that hint at human presence. Through her use of lighting she transforms the collages into 3 dimensional spaces that seem both natural and unhinged.
