Join artist and art-director Tzvika Gutter for a week of art and influences in underground Amsterdam.
This VNF Create module consists of two weeks in Karis and ends with a week in Amsterdam.
From Hercules to Mark Zuckerberg, from Snow White to Nicky Minaj. From the past to the Future, from reality to Fantasy and what lies between them. Archetypes become icons and icons inspire the stories that shape the world around us.
How do we visualize an idea? And how do we transform this idea into a character? Like detectives we will use our hearts, minds, eyes and intuition to look for clues and signs in history and the world around us to figure it out.
A journey into pop culture from Helsinki to Amsterdam and beyond!
