Each year we ask professional artists to be inspired by our festival and prepare a collaborative artwork to help us promote the InShortFF. This year we are honoured to present artwork by an international crew: PANG + FLOAT and David Shillinglaw + Erkut Terliksiz. InShortFF’s Art Department is also made of resident designer Victoria McGinness, audio-visual specialists from RE:Act! and musician Gizmo Varillas!

W E B S I T E // INSTAGRAM @davidshillinglaw // TWITTER @dodeshillinglaw // BUY ART „David is a mind adventurer, where the left half of the brain explores the right one. Unanswered, impulsive, instinctive and restless – David doesn’t paint or draw, he creates time. Evident in all his work is that David Shillinglaw is not afraid to humanise his art. He incorporates the perceptual concern of his journey as a man with his own sense of humour. The result is a powerful and fresh interpretation of everyday reality. His art has the appeal of Pop but a friendly, subtle, self effacing Pop that presents the ordinary and delights the viewer when he shows that you have your best conversation with yourself”.
