Announcing Paul Nicholson’s Character Design Workshop

British 2D animator Paul Nicholson is staying at Studio Kura in April!
Have you ever seen the animated show The Amazing World of Gumball? He is currently working on that series as a key animator. This is the Japanese teaser for Gumball.

Paul will be running a workshop where he will teach character design for animation. It will take place at Studio Kura on April 27th, and we plan to show his work from that day too so it will be a perfect day to spend at Studio Kura. Please contact us if you’d like to attend.

Kolom Hirofumi Matsuzaki untuk Asahi Art Festival (Bahasa Indonesia)

Let’s spend a post sharing Antariksa’s Indonesian translation for the column Hirofumi Matsuzaki wrote for Asahi Art Festival. Thank you very much, Antariksa! (the English translation is here)

Baru-baru ini Hiro menulis kolom tentang Program Seniman Residensi Studio Kura untuk Asahi Art Festival, jariangan yang berupaya menghubungkan banyak proyek seni di Jepang. Berikut ini adalah terjemahan Bahasa Indonesianya. Semoga Anda bisa lebih memahami program residensi kami.

Setelah lulus kuliah di Hiroshima, saya menetap di Jerman selama lima tahun sebagai seniman. Selagi bisa, saya selalu berusaha untuk mengikuti sebanyak mungkin program residensi seniman di Eropa.
Saya sedikit iri dengan orang-orang Eropa yang menghidupi kota mereka dengan seni, jadi ketika saya memutuskan kembali ke kampung halaman saya di Itoshima, saya pikir saya akan berupaya menumbuhkan lingkungan seni sebelum saya mencipta karya saya sendiri. Jadi saya memutuskan untuk menetapkan fondasi. Belajar dari residensi-residensi yang pernah saya ikuti, saya pikir fondasi itu seharusnya berupa suatu tempat di mana seniman berkumpul dan berkreasi, mencipta hubungan-hubungan baru dengan tempat itu.

Hirofumi Matsuzaki’s column for Asahi Art Festival

Hiro recently wrote a column about Studio Kura’s Artist in Residence Program for Asahi Art Festival, a network that connects many art projects in Japan. Here is an English translation, hoping that you will understand better his feelings about the Residence Program.

After I graduated at a certain university in Hiroshima, I lived in Germany for five years as an artist. I did my best to join as many artist in residence programs in Europe as I was able to.
I was a bit jealous of Europeans having art so blended into their cities, so when I decided to come back to my homeland Itoshima I thought I would have to build an environment before working on my own art. So I decided to build a base. And remembering the residences I had been to, I thought it should be a place where artists gather and create while building a connection to the place.
