But, are you up for another event – this time at Berlin for an unseen experience of a lesser known Westeros by 40 artists from the original series who will collaborate to illustrate the origins of Westeros and exhibit them?
The exhibition will take place in January 2019 and the visitors will get a chance to get know more about lesser mentioned parts ofGeorge RR Martin, Elio M. Garcia Jr. and Linda Antonsson’s created known world of The World of Ice and Fire including Essos, Ulthos, and Sothoryos. The official press release of the 5-day event reads:
“Over 3 years, 44 artists developed the unseen world of “Westeros.” Till now, there has not been any project where so many Game of Thrones artists worked together on one production. The exhibition shows only places of the World of Ice and Fire, which have not been seen yet.
Most artists were involved in the development of the world of Game of Thrones since the first season. Their works have been awarded 6 Emmys. Here at the exhibition, they show you a completely new world. Be prepared to dive into a world of fascination, excitement, and new histories.”
