Artist Spotlight: Ankat Hermanns

0 Comments 12 April 2017

Artist Spotlight on German illustrator Ankat Hermanns.

by Daniel Barron

 

 

Born in Aachen, Germany, close to the Dutch and Belgium border, Anne-Katrin Hermanns began drawing as soon as she was old enough to hold a pen. She presently resides in the Netherlands, where she finished her MA in Scientific Illustration at the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts after receiving a BA in Illustration during the Summer of 2011. Most artists need to know form and composition inside-out in order to successfully render their subjects, but with Hermanns’ clinical affinities, that sentiment becomes much more literal.

She writes in her bio:

“There is a story in every illustration. No matter if it’s traditional scientific illustration or computer-generated character design. I create a story in every single drawing, not in spoken words, but in an international visual language.

 

For Yay! LA’s Summer 2016 Yay! Legends Every Day series she interpreted James Cameron’s Avatar and the film adaptation of Cloud Atlas.
