ARTIST

Daan Botlek, Uplifting

Christophe Chommeloux

18 June 2018

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Daan Botlek is a black sheep in the field of art. Even though the Dutch creator is famous for his wide and impressively achieved wall paintings, it wouldn’t do justice to label him as a street artist as his body of works is diverse, complex and becomes meaningful only when considered as a whole.

BOOK

Michel Audiard

slant & slang

Stéphane Germain

30 April 2017

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Linking Michel Audiard, the French dialog writer for Les Tontons Flingueurs, with Asia might first seem like a joke rather than a real essay subject. This was my first reaction when I was traveling through the region and Latitudes assigned me to write about the author, with whom I’ve dealt with in some intimacy, in this light.
