Born and living in Lower Normandy, Vincent Gouf started walking down the artistic path from an very young age. Passionate about comics, he slowly turned his aspirations to painting and later to animation and music under the name of ‘Lingouf’, and has released several albums to critical acclaim – most recently through the German cult experimental music label Ant-Zen.
