Tetsuo and Kaneda´s bike in front of Academy of Fine Arts, Sarajevo

Anime @ ALU (Academy of Fine Arts, Sarajevo)

I was invited by Jasmina Gavrankapetanović- Redžić, an assistant lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts, Sarajevo, to do a short presentation on influences between Anime (Japanese animation) and Fine arts in general. Under the permission of Josip Alebić, a full professor at the Department of Art Education, a presentation was held as substitute to morning classes of Drawing to students of the first and second year. I was very lucky to find out that majority of the student body was familiar and some of them were already anime otaku 🙂

The goal was to push young artists to consider other sources for the basis of their artistic work apart from traditional or manneristic sources. Time will tell.
