Five animators nominate their favourite living artist in their field

Five animators nominate their favourite living artist in their field

Sharon Colman on Nick Park

Nick Park is a four-time Academy award-winning animation director and, of course, the creator of Wallace and Gromit. His characters are brought to life with sincere emotions and charm. It's all in the subtleties: the blink of an eye, the raising of an eyebrow. He lets his characters breathe and think, without relying purely on dialogue to carry the story. In some ways, Gromit says a lot more than Wallace.

Sharon Colman's Badgered was Oscar-nominated in 2006.

Joanna Quinn on Michaela Pavlátová

Czech animator Michaela Pavlátová's first film Words, Words, Words is a beautiful, funny piece about communication – without any dialogue. What struck me was how inventive she was. I was inspired by her bold sense of design, which continues the strong Czech graphic poster tradition. »
