Show at AUS: Marching Through Life
What is university about? University can be thought as the gathering of an intellectual family passing on everlasting knowledge and desire to learn even more to each next generation of students. The show imagined for American University of Sharjah symbolizes this procession of actors passing on traditions and knowledge from one generation to another. A band of characters in animated hand drawing march and play all around the facade of the building, a tribute to the talent of AUS’s creative students.
Artist: Julien Croyal
Illustrator and motion designer, Julien Croyal enjoys working with both traditional and digital material, switching from a pen and a sheet of paper to a stylus and a touch screen to animate sceneries and characters. Drawing inspiration from Franco-Belgian comics to foreign pop-culture elements, he intends to tell playful stories in still or animated images, pursuing the desire to explore a multiplicity of medium in this regard, from wall painting to screenprinting, adding now projection mapping to his list.
