About

Vanja Vikalo / LINNCH

Linnch is illustrator, animator and muralist, enjoying freelance life since 2006. Currently based in Belgrade, Serbia.

As freelance illustrator and animator Linnch worked for clients such as: Unicef, Coca Cola, Le Monde Diplomatique, Tuborg, Smoking Paper, Goethe Institut, Guarana Energy drink. Linnch was awarded in spheres of illustration, animation and graphic design.

Linnch makes his characters in many mediums, but he always creates worlds with a unique, often surprising internal logic. Linnch plays not only with layered characters, twisted logic and a melting world, but also with multiple interpretations of a certain social phenomenon. That uncertainty leaves the viewer amused, shocked, and, finally, engaged.

Always taking the context into account, his works have an inherent socially conscious approach. They play with the perception of the viewer, taking them on a roller-coaster ride from initial amusement, to estrangement, to the social critique and debate about the absurdity of our preconceived notions. There is always something a bit off, something surprising to discover in what we already know.
