CONTEMPORARY CHARACTER DESIGN AND ART

NOVEMBER 4, 2016



Pictoplasma finally heads back to New York with an all new, dense program of inspiring artist presentations, lively panel discussions and state of the art animation screenings.

Join us at the former Tishman Auditorium of renown Parsons The New School for Design for an eclectic celebration of next gen characters, with a fine lineup of artists hailing from around the globe, all sharing their unique focus on character related visuals, while covering a wildly diverse multitude of media, disciplines and styles.
The accompanying big screen animation program awaits you with endless character stimulus by today’s visual avant-garde, while the event allows all creatives and producers, trailblazing the face of tomorrow’s visual culture, to network and exchange strategies for the future of figurative representation.
