Instagram Takeover: Linsey Levendall

linsey levendall

This week the artist in charge of our Instagram account is Linsey Levendall. He’s currently living in Saskatchewan but originally from South Africa. I didn’t realise until I read his bio that he works closely with The Black Heart Gang. If you don’t know their work, watch “The Tale of How”, I saw them speak at F5 in New York several years ago and was completely blown away.

Linsey’s work was off my radar until recently but he’s quickly become one of my favourite artists. The detail in his work is kinda insane.

Please give him a warm welcome as he posts for the next 7 days. Follow along on our Instagram and make sure you follow his too!
