horfee01

Notorious French artist Horfee opened a solo show @ Ruttkowski;68 gallery in Cologne on Friday 5th of December. The artist who has both formal artistic education, but is most know for his illegal graffiti works, gave a good overview of his current works through “Traditional Occupations”.

Inspired by everything from European abstract painting to homemade tattoos, vintage animations and underground comics, Horfee is no stranger to using various medias and techniques for creating recognizable works. His colorful creations with loose edges are presented in form of acrylic and spray paint canvases, works on glass, sculptures and even embroidery. Through his work Horfee proudly shows the flaws of his techniques by creating melting imagery that is conforming to anything but ordinary or traditional.

So VNA’s Jodie got chatting with Nik, one half of the prolific double act, during a rare quiet moment nestled in a packed schedule of exhibitions, printmaking and painting, to try to find out a bit about what the past, present and future holds for the hardworking pair.
