LuciLux comes to ClinkNOORD

We partnered with KLIK Amsterdam Animation Festival last month to run a series of exhibitions and events celebrating all things animation.

Lucilux came to us through our Stay & Create X KLIK Animation Festival Competition. Her music video was screened as part of the KLIK Festival and she came to illustrate the walls of one of our private rooms. We totally love the results and we’re sure you will too!

About the artwork “OAK”

Carolina tells us about her piece on the walls of Room 326:

‘The piece is part of the “Tlalok” project about the good of water. “Oak” is a little monster traveling between cities and forests. It loves to sleep and travel, he respects nature and loves learning from his for travels, just like guests at Clink. It is a very positive and detailed piece, there is a lot to discover. When lying in bed, you can lose yourself in the details of the illustration.’
