Jelle de Graaf once started with empty shampoo bottles as a scrap art artist. Within 10 years, his name and fame in the festival scene grew and he designs gigantic decors, stages, and autonomous sculptures for exhibitions, manifestations, and festivals in the Netherlands and abroad. His signature style - robots, structures or characters out of used materials with a rough edge - gives an immediate 'wow factor'. Yet his creatures maintain their sympathetic appearance.
Joey Kremer is a true handyman and artists in one. He is part of builders/artists duo 'De Buurmannen' and he can make just about anything. Together with Jelle de Graaf he is responsible for some of the most eye catching buildings and structures on the Oude Markt, that give GOGBOT its distinctive edgy flavor.
