OUR ARTISTS

Artists who collaborate with us and with our pupils, really get inspired by it. “I’m really fascinated by that naïve way of drawing kids have. All artists try to get back to that way of working at some point, so being able to collaborate with a kid is just a dream. I just understood the vibe of the kid’s drawing, and the info Face This gave me was good enough to build something meaningful and still attached to the spirit of the kid.”
