The Angel of Punishment Exhibition by Eric Leone

17 May 2017


The University of Malta Library, in collaboration with Eric Leone (BFA in Digital Arts student in his final year) is organising exhibition entitled “The Angel of Punishment”.

“The Angel of Punishment” is Eric Leone’s final year project which aims to determine the important elements of contemporary character design, with special regard to gaming. 

The exhibition includes character design sketches and prints for a set of characters, which are based on stereotypical narrative roles. This practice is done within an ‘Open World Action Adventure’ game concept, which serves as a matrix for the characters and the narrative they serve.

The exhibition will be held between 22 and 26 May 2017 at the Library Foyer and it will be open to the public during Library opening hours.
