The king and the two artists

“The King and the two Artists” is a written story that can be found in Banksy’s book “Wall and Piece”. However, the author of the story is anonymous. I created an animation for “The King and the two Artists” story for a University project. No one apparently had ever done it before, not at least to my knowledge (and a quick research on the internet).


By using Photoshop, a lot of imagination, and some amazing techniques in Cinema 4D, I was able to create a 2 minute-long animation. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to render all the animation as my computer is not powerful enough. Most of the video is just animatics.



Designed and animated by Andrea Rizzotto.
