The Art Department | World Tour

Our host Spiridon Giannakis dives into the state of the creative community in Eastern Europe in this panel. He has some established creatives from that area tuning in to share their insights.

A senior concept artist and art director for Ubisoft Entertainment having collaborated for projects like Assassin’s Creed: Origins and Odyssey, Cristian Chihaia likes to engage in anything tackling his creative side whether it being digital painting, 3D sculpting, graphic design, illustration and even branding and identity. Cristian is originally from Romania.

With artworks that immediately transport you to other worlds, it is little wonder that Budapest-based Mark Molnar has collaborated on such varied projects. He specializes in the visual development and pre-production design for video games, movies and animations. His impressive client list includes LucasFilm, Time Warner, Netflix, MGM.

Also joining is Croatian Marko Prpic Zets. Next to being an artist with a background in graffiti, street art, fine art, animation, 3D, games, and sculpture, Marko is also the festival director of the IFCC festival. Marko is the founder of Boonika Network and IFCC Academy.
