About Flexn

Jakub Kanior a.k.a. Flexn was born 1974 in Poland and raised in the western part of Berlin. 
Growing up with punk-culture, comics and Döner Kebab he escaped boredom, work & reality
with scribbling silly pictures. And this is what he is doing until today.
Jakub has been designing posters and flyers for the Berlin club scene for several years.
The spectrum of his work derives from different styles and techniques and ranges from clean
digital works over scrawly drawings to canvas and paintings. Despite the different executions
and influences flexns personal style is always recognizable.

Bureau Baraque Themenheft Schnitzel (2006): Flexn ist Pole und hat sich nie getraut, besonders tief in das deutsche Land einzutauchen. Sprich: er wohnt in Berlin.
Wir haben ihn in der Layoutabteilung vom Springer-Konzern kennengelernt. Natürlich ist er ein totaler Kaputtnik, ganz wie wir es mögen. Kritzelt gerne und ist proud Daddy. Wir sind sprachlos, ehrlich. Flexi, Flexi...
