Vanja Vikalo / LINNCH

Animation/art director based in Belgrade. Worked for artists such as Bob Marley, Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Ty Dolla $ign, FKA Twigs, Jadakiss, Trouble, Quavo, Who See. Clients include Coca-Cola, Unicef, UMG, Samsung, VICE, Le Monde Diplomatique, Tuborg, Smoking Paper, Goethe Institut, Niksicko Pivo, Guarana Energy drink.

Before diving deep into the animation world, Linnch produced 13 solo exhibitions and participated in more than 30 group exhibitions. His latest solo show “Third Eye Crying” has been exhibited for 9 times in 8 European cities. Linnch drew murals and original artworks for more than 50 festivals and art projects. He was awarded in fields of illustration, animation and graphic design.

He 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.
