Luke Ramsey talking at Pictoplasm Festival

Luke Ramsey discusses the concepts and process of his commercial illustrations and personal art at the Pictoplasma Festival in Berlin.

Luke Ramsey is an illustrator and fine artist from Canada. He is founding member of Islands Fold, an artist residency located on Pender Island off Vancouver. His work is distinct through a continuous flow of pen on paper, which he digitally colours to strong tableaux. Human characters are set in landscapes and natural settings, mountains stare motionless and simple shapes build up to intricate agglomerations. Luke has collaborated with over 80 different artists to date and has exhibited widely in North America and Europe.

Here’s a 10 minute edit of Luke’s presentation at the Pictoplasma Berlin Festival, 2010.
