Biography
"We consider the way we work more as a trio, rather than a collective. The ideas, mood, energy, is created due to a combination of us three specifically. We never think of it as one, how much is individually contributed, as this will vary in each work. A finished Leo Gabin piece always contains 1/3 of each of us, regardless of the physical labor put into it by each individual.”

All of the artists graduated at the Royal Academie of Fine Arts of Ghent in Belgium. The trio was inspired by the proliferation of amateur videos which they discovered on the internet and particularly in the Social Network. Through these sources Leo Gabin absorbed the established symbols of the 'American Way of Life' and therefore developed artworks with recognizable aesthetics.
