Expo Sketch & Explore: the art behind film, animation & games

The quest for the right imagery in the development of a movie or game, is the space where technical skills, craftsmanship and creativity come together. Time to curate an expo about this, we thought! During our festival The Art Department we dedicated a free expo on this, so tell your friends.

21 April 2022 - 22 April 2022 (Event has ended)

What we see on our streaming channels, in cinema or in a game is the end result of a long design process in which artists are in the search for the perfect images or characters. In this exhibition you will find the original art work and sketches for numerous projects.

The original artwork and puppets of Netflix’s amazing stop motion film Robin Robin by Mikey Please will be on display. To enjoy for an up, close and personal exploration.

The works of illustrator and urban sketcher Jörg Asselborn are simply amazing. We are over the moon we can showcase some of his originals.

Fantasy artist Jesper Ejsing worked for Magic, Runebound, Pathfider and Wizards of the Coast. You can see his working process for numerous illustrations at this expo.

Illustrator Armel Gaulme was embraced by Caurette publishing house, and for good reasons. Come and see his art work an sketches of ‘BESTiary’, in the spirit of J.J. Grandville’s drawings and ‘Les Carnets Lovecraft’ inspired by the fantastic literature of H.P. Lovecraft.

During the expo Armel and Jörg will demonstrate their skills in some live sketching sessions (times to be announced). And to also dive into the sculpting process, also often used in the development of the visual style of games, animation and films, we asked Dutch artist Joop Bongaerts to do some live sculpting sessions.
