Interview – Justell Vonk


Justell Vonk is an artist from Moscow, Russia, who creates stunning drawings inspired by folklore and the occult. I recently discovered her through instagram and was immediately captivated by her surreal dark images, that brilliantly combine horror with a sense of twisted humor. I interviewed Justell about her own experiences with death and how she magically adds her beliefs and visions into her art.

Interview – Alexander Binder


German artist Alexander Binder was born under the perfect morbid circumstances: on Halloween night, in the midst of the famous Black Forest in Germany. Drawing his inspiration from symbolism and the occult, the self-taught photographer uses vintage lenses and other optical accessories to manipulate reality and capture its shadow side. I asked him about his experiences with death and how the subject of mortality influences his art.
