The Art Department Berlin 2022

Disney, Chromosphere, Dreamworks, The Line, Cartoon Network, Studio AKA… she has done it all! Animation director and illustrator Manddy Wyckens is not only an incredible promoter of female artistry, but also of the beauty in female figures. We loved her talk at The Art Department 2019 and we simply had to bring Manddy to meet our Berlin audience as well!

Now London-based Manddy Wyckens graduated from Gobelins, attended Calarts and studied literature on the benches of French universities. A freelancer since 2014, working on various projects including feature films, TV shows and commercials, she has recently started considering different engagements

Manddy’s approach is minimal yet bold, making her images an immersive visual journey. Her thin elegant lines create characters with both an attitude and an emotional edge. The hand-crafted drawn quality of her work is twisted in a more modern approach by her use of a compelling eye-catching color palette.

We can’t wait to see her new projects and enjoy her insights!
