K-Guy Intervju

K-Guy

It has been a while since my last interview here at Onion:Blogg. So to make an decent comback, I sent the London-based artist K-Guy a few questions. With his sharp comments on political, economic and religious affairs, he has made a name for himself the last couple of years, and especially with the brilliant “in loving memory”-installation outside the Bank of England in 2008. Here is what K-Guy had to say about the financial crisis, high politics and other things that pisses him off:

Interview by Karen Brown
You are known primarily as a cartoonist. Why did you choose to use this medium to express yourself?

It was kind of accidental – like everything else in my career. It was a good medium for me because I wanted to write and draw and as a cartoonist I can do that. I can create my own little world that is one of the things that I like to do. I can have complete control. My experience has been that most of the time magazines or newspapers let me provide a finished piece of work. It’s quite rare for them to interfere, so I’ve got this little zone that is completely mine.

A talk with Bestial from Argentina

After receiving a tip on Bestial`s work I knew I had to send of a few questions! Bestial is a Graphic Design Studio in Buenos Aires with great mix style! Here are a few Q&A:

I can see on your site that Bestial started in 2007, why did you start this design studio

Malm̦ Streets Project РInterview

“It is simple. The city is sad. There are little things that surprise me and get me laughing when I am stumbling out the door to buy milk.”

While most of us can agree with this statement found on the Malmö Streets Projects’s homepage, not so many of us are actually doing something about it. This may be why we tend to appreciate the ones that do even more.

With their great variety of art and other projects in the streets of Malmö, Malmö Streets Project is certainly making the lives of this Swedish city a little more exciting. So who are these generous guys, and why are they doing like the do?

Interview with Florian

A while back we came in touch with a great digital artist from Germany with the name of Florian Kuhlmann. After browsing through his work, we knew that we had to find out more about this guy. So, we sent him a few questions.

First of all, can you please tell us something about yourself and your background?

I am a German artist with a strong focus on digital media and the net in my work. I studied media art at the academy of media arts in Cologne until 2006 and worked as a programmer for many years for several big German Internet company’s. But in the past years my focus slowly shifted more and more on art.
