Back in 2002, Comic Fiesta began with one purpose: to bring together amateur artists under one umbrella and give them an avenue to offer their original products to the public. The decision was a fruitful one, and the art market grew in both size and scope.
Comic Fiesta 2010 brought together 100 groups of artists from all over Malaysia, offering one-of-a-kind original products ranging from self-published graphic novels, plushies, badges, artist commissions, posters and other assorted merchandise.
The Creative Art Market at CF 2011 will be the biggest yet, bringing together more than 400 local and international artists, both amateur and semi-professional, as they debut exclusive, never-before-seen works, communicate, network and collaborate, all under one roof of the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
This is ground zero to witness the true creative heart of Comic Fiesta.
The Creative Art Market is more than just one of the hallmarks of Comic Fiesta; it is the identity of Comic Fiesta. CF 2011 may have expanded to include all aspects of the ACG (Animation, Comics & Games) culture, but showcasing original works by amateur artists is still the heart and soul of Comic Fiesta, and will continue to be the status quo for years to come.
The CF 2011 Creative Art Market will run on both days, from the moment the doors open till closing time.
