Laying the foundation of a successful career in marketing at New York City’s Flight Club to now taking the culinary world by storm as Marketing Director of Ghetto Gastro, Malcolm McNeil’s observational and analytical qualities not only serve him professionally.
The young creative tells us about his insatiable appetite for screenwriting, Japanese jazz and his first love photography.
Translating dialogues into visuals, music into emotions, and cookbooks into manuals for living, Malcolm is ultimately obsessed with building narrative, as he understands that art imitates life and vice versa.

Yué is a Paris-based artist, known for his figurative drawings and sculptures. Departing from a background in animation, he currently works with materials, techniques and surfaces such as bleach on canvas, or etchings on metal to explore physical permanence and the idea of a sketch as a truthful medium that shows the artist's original touch or hand.
In this episode of the art of geeking he takes us into his world of 1930’s cinema posters, dinosaurs, and pop cultural iconography and explains how he is looking to capture an energy and aesthetic that counters a world that is often obsessed with perfectly polished and overly stylised imagery.
