From October 17th to October 26th ILLUSTRATIVE’s 4th forum of illustrative an graphic arts took place in the Zurich Messehallen. Conceived in Berlin in 2006 by Pascal Johanssen and Katja Kleiss, ILLUSTRATIVE is an annual forum, and the only one of it’s kind worldwide, that presents the latest inclinations which run the gamut of illustrative and graphic art in one exhibition. Illustrative’s art is fresh, humorous, and easily accessible. The scope of work displayed in ILLUSTRATIVE ranges from psychedelic wall paintings to erotic neon pop art, while presenting monumental town views as well as quasi photo-realistic drawings. The special sensitivity to artistic quality and a mix of analogue and digital techniques give a special progressiveness to the illustrative arts. This has decisively influenced the development of contemporary art for some time. The latest ILLUSTRATIVE has expanded in comparison to previous years. It now includes a central exhibition, sectional exhibitions, temporary workshops, and a forum for presentations and conferences.
