Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase
Using the innovative technique of clay painting, artist, filmmaker and winner Joan Gratz takes the viewer on an amazing colorful journey through the development of modern art from Van Gogh to Warhol. The short uses claymation to seamlessly follow the major roads of the roots of modern art. It's a gorgeous piece, and definitely worth your time. Joan was a long time artist with Will Vinton Studios and has created many films and commercials with her clay painting technique.
