About this title


The recent revival of dilettante and outsiders art has brought an immense visual wealth to the world of illustration, fine art and character design. Artists release their creativity through spontaneous freehand drawing and create untamed, edgy and unparalleled beings. Their fast, eruptive and rough drawing techniques can be seen as a therapy to the sterility of the flood of digital images. Common sympathy seekers, consumer mascots and pop icon characters are re-traced and translated into an emotional, personal, diary-like language.

Pictoplasma presents a fine selection of the most adventurous images from a global scene of artists, working mainly with a pen or analogue techniques such as water color, ink or collage. Pen to Paper showcases the key players of what is being labelled 'DIY art,' 'fractured figuration' or 'new psychedelic folk', with works by Mehdi Hercberg alias Shoboshobo, Allyson Mellberg Taylor, Andrew James Jones, John Casey, Luke Ramsey, Eric Shaw, Thomas Bernard, Lane Hagood, Stéphane Prigent alias Kerozen and many more.
