the art department 2020 | LIVE SCULPTING (live on stage)

German sculptor, animator and illustrator Erik Staub has been working in the industry for more than 20 years. We're delighted that he is going to be live sculpting at the hybrid edition of  The Art Department. Join us and watch how Erik will sculpt several works in these two days. Erik will also do small hands on workshops during the festival days and is open to any questions all the time.

Born in 72 it only took Erik 5 years to be annoyed with the dinosaur toys of the time so he started sculpting his own. Never quitting the passion for sculpture Erik began to work on animated films and advertising in the late eighties and later became H.R. Giger apprentice. All those years in art lead to becoming a creative producer in the games industry where Erik produced titles like Crysis 2 Travian Vendetta and many more. He has also been teaching and numerous Academys over the last 20 years.

The sculpting will take place in the area of the expo SKETCHING – Into the mind of the artist.
