Pixar, 25 years of animation

Dedicated to all animation movie fanatics and digital art lovers like me: there’s a must-see show in Milan these days, one we just can’t miss. It’s Pixar – 25 years of animation, the exhibition that celebrates the works of the computer animation film studio that brought to us classics like Toy Story, Cars and WALL·E.

The focus of the exhibit is on the design work from which an animated movie is born. Pixar puts on display up to 700 handmade artworks made by traditionally trained artists who work with paper, colors and clay to create the images of the characters and the worlds of the stories.

The show is on a world tour: it opened at New York’s MOMA, went to Australia and the Far East and is now touring Europe. It’s going to stay in Milan until 14th February 2012 and trust me, I won’t miss it for anything in the world.
