In 2010 Pictoplasma presented a series of exhibitions in Germany, France and the UK, featuring original work by the key players of what was labelled “DIY art” “fractured figuration” or “new psychedelic folk”. The revival of analogue skills injected immeasurable visual wealth into the world of illustration, fine art and especially character design, as artists started to reject the computer and channeled their creativity through spontaneous freehand drawings to create untamed, edgy and exceptional beings.
