Andreas Preis is an artist and designer from Berlin.
Festival Locations: Upper West, Bode-Museum „House of Art“ and Brandenburg Gate („Schmetterlingsmotiv“)
Being born deep in the Bavarian Forest in the south of Germany in 1984, he soon discovered his weakness for drawing and colors. After planning to become a »painter without a boss« since he was about 5 years old, he decided to study communications design in Nuremberg. He graduated from Georg-Simon-Ohm University with a diploma in 2009. Since then, he’s been working as a freelancing artist, happy to actually fulfill his childhood plan.
His illustration style is a mixture of traditional and digital art, combining hand-drawings, cros-hatching and _»real colors« with the possibilities of the digital age. His skill set includes illustration, murals, tape art and live paintings as well as the different areas of traditional communications design like typography, logo design, icon design and art direction.
