MATTIAS ADOLFSSON /
STUDIOUS

Award-winning Swedish illustrator Mattias Adolfsson is known for his humorous and narrative ink drawings. Eccentric characters, bizarre machines, and everyday objects are the elements of his complex sceneries, which are almost impossible to take in all at once.

After he quit his career as a 3D artist mainly for computer games, Mattias rebooted and started showing his drawings in a sketch blog in 2006, which has since been one of the most visited illustration logs worldwide.

His commissioned work includes clients like the New York Times Magazine, The Onion, Spotify, and many others. Mattias also released several personal books, which have won numerous awards.

GOOD IDEAS MAKE GREAT ILLUSTRATION

GOOD IDEAS MAKE GREAT ILLUSTRATION

ILLUSTRATION MASTERCLASS
WITH YUKO SHIMIZU

What is that thin line that divides into “that’s a pretty good illustration“ and “wow, that’s amazing“? Simple answer: great illustrations are always based on good ideas.

You have been wanting to make a leap into the latter side? Welcome to this course. We will work together on your idea skills, using various exercises – some simple, some not so simple, so you can flex your idea-brain, and ultimately make that leap into “wow that’s great!“. We also aim to finish at least one illustration from start to finish during the workshop. Let’s have fun for four days together!

Yuko Shimizu is a Japanese illustrator based in New York City, and an instructor at School of Visual Arts.

Required skills:
Recommended for intermediate level or above. Though there are no strict skill requirements, this course is NOT recommended for beginners. You should have some experience creating illustrations from start to finish. Intermediate English proficiency: The course will be conducted in English, and there may be some reading materials/discussions involved.

Required material:
For idea exercises, bring a large inexpensive stack of drawing papers, sketchbook you normally use, pens, permanent markers, pencils and tape. Please also bring any material you want to use to make your final illustration, which is up to you to decide. You may want to look up reference materials, or do research, so having some kind of web device would also help (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc. Free wifi will be provided).

HZA BAZANT / <br/> NUSLE

HZA BAZANT /
NUSLE

„Nusle is a place. Beneath the surface of everyday experience, strange creatures live their bizarre stories in asphalt driveway cracks, in the echo of railroad rumble, in the shadows of chimneys and telegraph wires …

Nusle is originally a large scale graphic cycle, consisting of individual large screen prints (70 x 100 cm) on textured & colored paper, on which stencils and spray paint have been applied to create subtle, metallic, largely fluorescent color effects and blurred lines.

In his impressive graphic saga, Prague-based artist Hza Bazant tells a dreamlike, surreal story, taking place in the backdrop of the urban periphery. Deeply rooted in Prague and Czech culture, each image consists of surreal images of scenes depending on a number of seemingly unrelated, dreamlike stories, but in fact deeply intertwined.

Individual images are rich scenes full of symbols, taking place in the backdrop of the urban periphery, which represents the peripheral areas of the mind.

JAPANGA!

JAPANGA!

A JOURNEY FROM SHIN-HANGA TO MODERN ILLUSTRATION ART

The Shin-hanga („new prints“) movement from early 20th century Japan constitutes one of the main roots of today´s Manga and has had a tremendous impact on modern illustration art.

Just as the classic Ukiyo-e woodblock prints of the 18th and 19th centuries influenced European artists, and led to impressionism and art nouveau in Europe (as well as to Jugendstil in Vienna), Shin-hanga was strongly influenced by Western elements such as the effects of light and the expression of individual moods, but focused on strictly traditional Japanese themes.

In this exhibition, some of the most important works from the Shin-hanga movement will be displayed in Austria for the first time. The collection will give a vivid impression on how Shin-hanga has influenced the aesthetics and visual concepts of contemporary artists.

Completed with artworks by award-winning illustrator Yuko Shimizu, known for her stunningly powerful and perfectly crafted drawings, the exhibition will take you on a journey through time, showing the development from a traditional art form to the best of contemporary illustration.

DAVOR<br/>GROMILOVIC /<br/>LAND OF HISTRIA

DAVOR
GROMILOVIC /
LAND OF HISTRIA

LAND OF HISTRIA is a series of 20 ink drawings on paper by Serbian artist Davor Gromilovic, inspired by Istrian landscapes, vegetation, and wildlife. The series is a result of artist‘s prolonged stay in Istria and his cultural exploration of its parts during the summer of 2015. These artworks radiate with fairy-tale-like energy; visual narratives are inspired by the fantastic motives of folk-art and cultural heritage while the characters somehow personify the artist himself.
