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!

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.
