About Feathers

Pretty much every kid in the world goes through a "dinosaur phase". Because we never outgrew ours we asked 24 artists to also revisit their childhood and create all new work based on these majestic creatures that once ruled the earth.

The work we are presenting is very diverse, with techniques ranging from watercolour to pure digital illustration, from dip pen and indian ink to riso prints and everything in between, there are even some small wooden dinosaur statues. It makes for a really great mix.

Why Feathers?

Popular opinion amongst paleontologists nowadays is that our modern birds are considered to be surviving dinosaurs. There is also strong evidence that some dinosaurs actually had feathers in some way, shape or form.
