Posted on 24-Feb-2015 21:28. | Tags Filed under: News.

Chromacon is an indie festival of visual arts that celebrates creative innovation, artistic excellence and community within the realms of graphic art and design. Free to the public, this unique eventconnects lovers of these contemporary art genres with nearly 100 of the best homegrown illustrators, comic artists, designers, animators and video game developers, from emerging to established practitioners.

Artists exhibiting at Chromacon 2015 include Dylan Horrocks, Ema Frost, Faction Comics, Tim Gibson, Sam Orchard, Ben Senbeck (of Hellboy fame), WETA artists Paul Tobin, Nick Keller, Jeremy Hanna and Stuart Thomas, and Toby Morris.

The intimate nature of Chromacon means attendees can meet and connect with artists they may already admire as well as discovering many others.

New this year is the one-day industry symposium Chroma-connect, taking place on Friday, 17 April at the Aotea Centre. Chroma-connect facilitates professional development, emergent innovation and entrepreneurial opportunities for New Zealand’s creative sector, through workshops, panel discussions, education and networking activities.

Then, on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 April, the free two-day exhibition of original artwork and creative projects opens. Attendees are able to purchase self-published work such as prints, art books, comics and even originals from the artists directly.

Throughout the weekend, there will also be live events, demos, gaming opportunities and discussions.

Festival Director Allan Xia, says, “I'm very excited about the diversity of artists in our curated Chromacon exhibition. Whether illustrative, sequential, animated or interactive, their works represent the most innovative examples of visual storytelling in New Zealand today.”
