EXHIBITION: ALBERTO VAZQUEZ. DARK FABLES | FROM COMICS TO ANIMATION FILMS

This is our first time, so be kind. With the help of Ana Chouciño we proudly present our first incursion in the field of exhibitions.

The work of Alberto Vazquez takes from traditional fairy tales and fables to adapt them to contemporary points of view with strong political and ecological echoes. The protagonists in these stories are animal characters in a fantasy planet that seems quite similar to the human world we live in.

Alberto Vazquez have changed Spanish modern animation with his distinctive artistic style that doesn’t look like anything made before in Spain. With a dark sense of humour, Vázquez’s films show an innovative approach to translating the techniques and devices from his original comics to animation.

The exhibition is part of an overall retrospective in the work of Alberto Vazquez, which includes masterclasses, workshops and film screenings in Edinburgh and Glasgow. 04 (2)
