Director Statement

I first came across Christophe and his work on a trip to my local library. I saw him sketching one of his designs, and was immediately taken with his work. I found out he was the “Lord of the Logos”, a cult artist who came to prominence in the Norwegian Black Metal scene of the early 90’s. I bought his book, I fell in love with his designs, and decided to arrange to meet up with him and talk about his work.
I was just as taken with Christophe’s character as I was his art and knew I had to make a documentary about him, to do my part to bring his art to the wider world, and to try and spread the creativity and passion of the Lord of the Logos.
