Sommerfest!

Grafill Bergen inviterer deg til sommerfest!!

Grafill har også invitert Åge Peterson, Europa og Mr. Bingo til å holde foredrag denne kvelden.

Foredragene starter presis:

18:00 Åge Peterson (NO)
Åge Peterson er illustratør og tegneserieskaper, uteksaminert med mastergrad fra KHiB/KMD i 2011, etterfulgt av fem år som blant annet grafisk designer, veileder og sensor på KMD og er nå inne i sitt tredje år som fulltids illustratør. Brorparten av tiden går med til redaksjonell illustrasjon for kunder som for eksempel Aftenposten, D2, Monocle Magazine, Arkitektnytt og Psykologtidsskriftet. Hans mest ønskede illustrasjons-jobb ligger der ute en gang i fremtiden; cover for The New Yorker.

Han presenterer hvordan det har gått fra den spede start som illustratør i 2016, hvordan og hvorfor han jobber som illustratør, litt om hva som motiverer han og det som ikke gjør det, og hvordan det å sette rammer for seg selv har gitt ham frihet og retning.

19:00 Europa, Mia Frostner (SE/UK)
Europa is a graphic design company based in London and run by Mia Frostner and Robert Sollis, both graduates of the Royal College of Art. Europa has a particular interest in architecture, urbanism and the role that graphic design can play in a place’s identity. Europa look for moments when graphic design and architecture overlap, and create opportunities for their work to play a more supportive and less top down role in framing a place.

In this talk Mia will show selected work such as graphic identities, public art and signage in the built environment made in collaboration with architects, artists and local councils.

20:00 Mr. Bingo (UK)
Mr Bingo was born in 1979. In 1980 he started drawing. There wasn’t a lot to do in Kent. In 2011 he began the project Hate Mail on Twitter, where strangers paid him to send a hand-drawn offensive postcard to a name and address of their choice.

In summer 2015, he ran a Kickstarter campaign to fund a high-end art book of his Hate Mail illustrations. The campaign, which was launched with a rap video, for which Mr Bingo wrote and recorded an original song, was set to run 28 days but was successfully funded within 9 hours and finished 386% funded with 3,732 backers, making it the most successful Kickstarter for a book in the UK ever. Some of the Kickstarter rewards included going around people’s houses to do the washing up, getting drunk on a train, a date in a Wetherspoon’s of their choice, receiving a pornographic drawing of the Queen and being called up and told to fuck off on Christmas day. He tried to sell a year of his friendship but nobody bought it.

After a successful 15 year career as an illustrator, in 2015 Mr Bingo made a decision to stop working for clients and go it alone as some sort of ‘artist’. Nobody really knows how he makes a living now, but somehow he does.
