Guest Artist no. 1

Coup was on a roll last year. We couldn’t be happier when we got the highly coveted “Website of the Year” award at Visuelt here in Oslo. We quite liked the site ourselves, but we’d like to make more of a statement out of it.

We‘ve reached out to some of our best friends in the visual world and asked them if they’d like to take over our front page for a while. How they do it is strictly up to them. Our images may - or may not - be used either as inspiration or as elements in all or parts of their installations.

The first piece is by Oscar Grønner (@oscargronner), illustrator and designer. All though an exceptionally skilled creative thinker and tinkerer, he’s mostly known for his illustrations. “I wanted to explore combining illustration and photography in a moving way,” Oscar tells us about the 3 video loops he made for the coup front page. Amongst other things, Oscar has worked with several international publications, including The New York Times. You should follow him on [insta].

Drop by every now and then for some inspiration, like us on Facebook to get updates when we refresh the front page, or drop us a line if you’d like to submit your artwork.
