This week, artists, character designers and animators will be gathering in Berlin for this year’s Pictoplasma Festival. Going from April 10 – 14, the event will feature concurrent exhibitions at over 20 art spaces throughout Berlin, conferences, film screenings and parties. Highlights from the festival include Jeff Soto’s (Hi-Fructose Vol. 16 cover artist) show at Platoon Kunsthalle Berlin and Low Bros’ (featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 26) show at Letters Are My Friends. Among the many talented emerging artists participating in the festival, newcomer El Grand Chamaco at Mercado San Cosme and Bakea at Instituto Cervantes caught our attention.
