Master 2:卢卡什·戈登  Łukasz GORDON


Chief Animator & Design Painter, Loving Vincent

Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully painted feature film. The film brings the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil-painting hand-painted by 125 professional oil-painters who travelled from all across the world to the Loving Vincent Studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production. More than six years in the making with the help of 125 specially trained painters, Loving Vincent is a uniquely animated film composed of 65,000 painted frames. Drawn from meticulous research and inspired by Van Gogh’s masterpieces, subjects, and 800 personal letters, Loving Vincent captures the world of Van Gogh in a cinematic experience like no other. As remarkable as Vincent’s brilliant paintings, is his passionate and ill-fated life, and mysterious death.


Loving Vincent will attend the C.A.K.E. TALK Master II of the 14th CICAF Summit Forums on the morning of April 28th. They will bring a 2*4 meters murals painting onto the stage. In addition, two artists will also attend the Global Launch Ceremony of China Cartoon & Animation Museum Collection Solicitation on the afternoon of April 28th.
