Last month, I was honored to be invited to join Pictoplasma 2013 and be one of the speakers. It was a very nice and special experience for me, spending time and sharing ideas with 20 more international artists and designers. It was also like a dream...a funny dream because I could give a speech in same event with the artists who I knew and like when I was a college student. Surprisingly, they also know and like my artwork since long time ago : ) so funny!
One of the highlighted artists in that event is Will Sweeney from London. I have been loving his work for a long time and I found out we came from the same college and the same department! Another genius, Ori Toor from Israe. Check it out! He is a sexy graphic artist. And very lucky on the last night in Berlin, I met one of the best illustrators in UK, Jonathan Edwards. He draws very well and he has collaborated with Louise Evans and made a series of felt sculpture. This is the work that I love the most! I wish I can spend more time there and explore more lovely places in this city.
Thank you so much to the Pictoplasma curating team, Peter Thaler, Lars Denicke, Laure Saint-Yves....see you guys again at 2014!! hug and beer! Some more nice shoots of Pictoplasma Berlin 2013 HEREAnd my shoots in BerlinHERE : )

This time, Peitt lapin and I will be joining a group show with Mark Gmehling, Tim Biskup, Jeremyville,Geneviève Gauckler, Bakeaand many more wonderful artists from all over the world. *you will see my big sculpture and a team of Petit lapin.
