Illustrative Berlin 2013

Below are some personal highlights of this year’s Illustrative Berlin Festival. Gathering 190 international artists under one roof, the festival’s themes this year were art vs.crafts and technology vs.intention, and the results were  an interesting mix of illustration and graphic design presented in the charming Direktorenhaus.

The complex illustrations of Mugluck (above) are illuminated by one of Direktorenhaus’ unusual lamps.

Some of my favourite collages/drawings are pictured here above and below, based on a series of postcards by Daniel Horowitz. Entitled ‘365’, the artist produced one piece of work every day for a year, starting each time with a single, blank sheet of paper, encouraging the artist to step away from his computer and get back to grips with more traditional creation processes.

The piece below is by Polish artist Maciej Sieńczyk as part of the festival’s main exhibition, ‘Where I Come From’, which focussed on contemporary Polish visual art.
