Building on the graphical roots of today’s character culture, the selection examines the essential qualities that enable these reduced character depictions to hit home with the universal power of anthropomorphic appeal.   

By sorting, clustering, cross-referencing and inter-linking the creations of a disparate scene of artists, the character compendium creates a unique cartography of the latest generations populating the character universe. Featuring more than 900 outstanding artworks and individual characters by 200 international artists, The Character Compendium is one of its kind, giving insight to the current trends in figurative design.

The Character Compendium features work by:
AJ Fosik, Raymond Lemstra, Julia Pott, James D Wilson, FriendsWithYou, Jon Fox, Florentijn Hofman, Felt Misstress, Sauerkids, Jon Burgerman, Julia Pott, Aaron Leighton, Gemma Correll, Jeanspezial, Amanda Visell, Brock Davis, Rilla Alexander, Andy Kehoe, Jordan Metcalf, Phunk Studio, Noferin, Hyein Lee, Nathan Jurevicius, Nina Braun, Sarah Illenberger, Tim Biskup, McBess, Ian Stevenson, Andy Rementer, Meni Tzima, TADO, Matias Vigliano, Osian Efnisien, Koralie, Joshua Ben Longo, Nick Sheehy, Kurt Separately, Garry Milne, Superdeux, Ben Newman, Paul Shih
