In our studio we specialise in drawing and painting techniques and reproduced graphics, such as risography, linocuts, woodcuts, silkscreens and the production of illustrations, calligraphy, posters, zines, comics and courses in these techniques. Our ambition is to make the graphic arts (based on traditional and new techniques) widely known to a visually sensitive and knowledgeable audience.
So, at Primanima Print House, we not only fulfill print orders, we also offer graphic design courses and workshops for all ages. We particularly recommend a visit to the studio as an art university preparation for those aged 16+ who plan to continue their studies by going to art university. But we also offer arts and crafts sessions for adults who, at some phase in their life, have discovered that it's time to get creative, to do the creative work they've been longing to do!The graphic techniques used in the studio include: risography, linocut, woodcut, silkscreen, collography, monotype, other drawing and painting techniques. We also teach these techniques in our workshops and our webshop offers prints made in our studio, as well as various art tools and materials we use.
Bori Rutkai is the most multifaceted Hungarian children’s song author. There is no family where there is not a Bori Rutkai book on the shelf, or the children are not singing her songs. Bori is a visual artist, singer, composer, writer of tales and song lyrics, who sings joyful and rad songs not only for children, but for the whole family. Her catchy tunes and rhymes, colourful costumes, even more colourful drawings and crocheted puppets will nestle themselves in everyone's head. Bori has been attending our festival since the beginning and was a guest of Primanima in 2022 as a jury member, performer and exhibitor.
The works of Fokion Xenos are not unknown to the audience of Primanima, two of his animations were also in competition in the children's program in previous years and he was one of our jury members and lecturer in 2022. His work Heatwave won the award for the most popular international children's film in 2019, which was shown with great success at more than 70 festivals. He began his studies in Athens, then studied at the NFTS in London, and currently works in both countries. As an animation filmmaker he is interested in playful and bold stories that focus on visual wit and emotional honesty.
Animation film director, graphic artist, art educator, Primanima founder and director Tamás Patrovict and head of the mayor’s cabinet in Budaörs Csaba Vágó share their thoughts on the occasion of the festival’s 10th anniversary.
