|Details||Mr. Koen is widely considered a peculiar case in the applied arts, not just because of the way he looks, but for managing to crisscross between illustration, typography, design, photography, academia, facebook and gallery work without getting killed. His unorthodox methods of developing concepts for clients, curators and his mother will be showcased through an avalanche of sketches and finished images but also industry stories, anecdotes and obvious exaggerations in order to make an impression.
A grueling Q&A session will follow.
