After last year’s online edition its time for the Uber-Festival of contemporary character culture to carefully return to the real world, with an all new line-up of awe inducing artist presentations, a vivid mix of on-stage and remote conference lectures, freshly curated animation screenings, hands-on workshops — and as always: a multitude of mingling characters!
And additionally we’ll be online too!
Pictoplasma’s first issue of its new magazine for character design and art examines current artistic strategies that deal with the human face. From masks to digital filters, design to performance, pandemics to protests, the face remains a strategic zone where our identity and privacy are constantly being challenged and redefined – and new characters emerge.
Welcome to Pictofolio.com, Pictoplasma’s free online home for characters—and their creators!
Pictofolio enables international artists and creators to meet new friends, inspire each other, collaborate and show character!
A NEW CALL FOR ENTRIES now invites all international artists, illustrators, and designers to join the #CharacterFlags challenge and turn their character into an iconic, graphical representation of itself!
Since 2013, Pictoplasma brings the experience, knowledge and expertise of its conferences and festivals to a new level of inspiration and intensity with a unique 8-day masterclass in Berlin. Selected Academy participants get the unique chance to work on refining their personal projects and ideas under the close guidance of acclaimed artists and designers with years of experience and international standing.
