Every year I await the Pictoplasma festival with great excitement. Could help the fact that this festival happen usually to meet with the beginning of the good weather but mostly it is because I just love character design, it’s so much fun. For the main exhibition, they chose this year a fantastic location, the Silent Green Kulturquartier in Wedding.
This complex of ateliers, gardens, offices and events venues dedicated to art has just open in the old city crematorium. Was shocking to see the shelves that in other times must have hold funerary urns, filled with flashy characters. The bold illustrations of the fantastic Joan Cornellà under the main dome felt a little bit like giving the finger to death itself.
