We are proud to present this year’s VAF artist: Nikita Diakur!
Nikita Diakur is an award-winning animation artist, whose crude and unique style embraces spontaneity, randomness, and errors. This leads to surprising results, and we are excited reveal this year's festival trailer, which Nikita has just started working on.
Nikita is born in Moscow, educated in London and now based in Germany. His short film “Ugly” (2017) has won multiple awards at International film festivals. It was followed by the animated short “Fest” (2018) that screened on Adult Swim Online and started its festival circuit in Oberhausen, Zagreb and Annecy.
Nikita Diakur has a recidency at Open Workshop behind him and is a friend of The Animation Workshop and VAF.
