Marlies van der Wel

Marlies van der Wel is an animator and illustrator. She started in 2007 working on both commercial and personal projects. Her short films have been recognised internationally at prestigious festivals such as Berlinale, Toronto Film Festival and Sundance, to name a few. Marlies’ illustrations are the result of a painstaking collage process in which she weaves drawings, textures and random objects together. That’s just half the deal, as her creations are brought to life in a technique that she calls ‘digital cut-out animation’ enabling her to create humour with beautiful, detailed images animated with minimal but natural movement.
