Last year we were contacted to make some cut out illustrations for one of Untold Festival's stages. The idea of the whole stage was to give the impression of a magical nocturnal realm filled with different forest creatures, all gathered around and curious of the music that was played on the stage. It was first made out of five layers. One background layer, showing an old druid in a state of meditation and slowly transforming into a tree. A night tree filled with stars. To the left side of the stage, we have another layer showing a fragment of the mushroom folk's region. Here we see some "Ciuperici" flying between the spores, and at the lower part we see their hatch-lings hiding underneath some Pleurotus. To the right side we have a family of "Florarioți". They just returned from a visit to the nearest spring of the forest. At the lower part we have the mother with a bucket of cool spring water and her two children. Behind them we have the Father mounted on tamed "Cearbore" watching over his family. Masking the frame of the stage we have two tall Tree Guardians joining their forces to protect the realm. As we worked on these first layers, additional ones were requested to form the final piece. Thank you Atelier PLAI Cluj team for this wonderful collaboration!
