The focus of this year’s LIAF is on Polish animation. That other European country with quite a long history of animated hits which include a vast culture of storytelling, fairytales and a very diverse mix of artistic styles and influences. One of the big exponents of young Polish animation is Robert Proch, who may not be attending this year’s edition like his counterpart Wojtek Wawszczyk but whose most recent works will be present all over.
Nothing can be found on his latest short “Gallery” the story of a pit bull and his owner in a surreal shopping centre but the rest of his previous works are already on-line including his award-winning “Virus”.
Graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań Robert’s interest go from painting & graffiti to illustration & animation… a multi-shit artist (as Pla would say) who clearly excels in each and every discipline. And given he’s only 24, well… still many years left to win some important awards. Make sure you visit his page.
