36 MOUNTAINS is an international festival dedicated to illustration with the main goal of bringing illustration and drawing closer to the public. We aim to present the best of the domestic and global illustration scene and to recognize young and new artists.
The festival offers the chance for illustration lovers to come face to face with their favorite artists and discover amazing new artwork from emerging illustrators.
During the festival we will present the works of 22 new artists chosen by our jury and 6 already established authors.
Moving away from the typical gallery/museum approach, the form of 36 MOUNTAINS festival is about illustrating well known concertina notebooks that are given to each artist. The selected artists are free to express themselves in their 1,80-meter-long concertina notebooks on both sides specifically designed for this project.
Their works are shown in the main exhibition area during the festival.
The exhibition is open to the public for a period of four days and is accompanied by a rich side program that includes workshops, lectures and panels on current topics related to art and illustration.
Thank you and see you soon at 36 MOUNTAINS festival 2018!
