PK People: Jónatan Piedra

Hailing from PechaKucha Night Santander, for this weeks PechaKucha People we'd love to introduce you to the ever curious and creative Jónatan Piedra. Born in the fantastic 20th century, Jónatan has always been curious about everyday things, such as the origin of the universe. He has been studying and researching the field of physics for years and believes that it is own choice, but also his duty, to teach and talk about physics to others, whether they be other physicists, children in schools, or grown-ups in a theater at a PechaKucha Night. In fact, you can catch him this week at PechaKucha Night Santander Vol. 9 on May 24th. If you're just as curious as he is about physics, make sure you don't miss out on this great event this Friday! Thanks for everything you do, Jónatan, and we can't wait to see what else you've got!

PKN Poster Spotlight: Viña del Mar

PechaKucha Night Viña del Mar flew into first place to win this week's PechaKucha Poster Spotlight! Truly embracing the inventor's imaginary spirit, this poster is a graphic design masterpiece. This "Ideas and Projects" poster shows an antique graphic of an inventor with his self-made, flying machine. As he flies through the sky, there is a wonderful mixture of vintage and modern design. This montage poster spotlights Viña del Mar's 2nd event, where next week many will land in for a good night!

Drawn From the Present

BY COLLIN HAMMAN
@ VOL 7 ON APR 05, 2019

Collin Hamman never takes his time for granted and makes a point of using each moment as a possibility for inspration. His graphic design and illustrations are heavily influenced by his time spent in the wilderness of Montana where he sees constant opportunity for the next t-shirt, logo, or printed design work that may come his way. Being self-employed as an artist is never easy, but when you mix pleasure with work the way Collin does, you will always come away fulfilled.

The Portraiture Paradox

BY BEN FRISCH
@ VOL 2 ON APR 11, 2019

Ben Frisch has been an artist since the age of 2. He sold his first drawing to a classmate in grade 6 and he was hooked. Art as a career can be a challenging path to take especially as a portrait artist and that pursuit dominated his 20’s. Although Ben had many ups and downs, that dream never came to fruition. His passion for portraiture was put on a shelf and now at 36, he has not made art for a long time. It’s sad to think that dream may have died but in hindsight, Ben now sees the paradox that plagued him. This is the story of Ben's career as a portrait artist and why he was doomed to fail.
