About

Vanja Vikalo / LINNCH

Linnch is an illustration oriented visual artist from Herceg-Novi, Montenegro. Currently based in Belgrade, Serbia.

Working in various media: from text-driven art and character design to animation he creates worlds with a unique, often surprising internal logic.

Linnch plays not only with these freaky 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.
