Málaga's Vol. 6 is going down today, but their second PechaKucha night (held last September) went off with a bang, and video production studio VisualK has put together a fantastic video from the Vol. 2, which can be found here.

The sunny Spanish seaside city of Málaga is bound to leave more than a few with a summer tan, but this guy may have overdone it a bit.

A French Magazine About Graphic Design and Painted Fantasy Worlds
Presentations Alexandre Dimos is a French graphic designer, and in his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95) he talks about Back Cover. As he explains, he couldn't find what he really wanted to read in France, and so he helped create an independant magazine focusing on thinking and analyzing graphic design and typographic practices, and to a larger extent, visual arts. Miro Pecho is a Slovak painter, and he uses his presentation (in Czech, from PKN Znojmo Vol. 1) to explain how different fantasy worlds influence his paintings. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with PKN Malaga Vol. 3, pictured above (the event was held last night). The other addition is for PKN New Orleans Vol. 7, which is happening tomorrow night. The image below is not a poster or a flyer, but rather part of a call for presenters for the next PKN in Genoa (or Genova), and we loved it so much we wanted to share it. All roads lead to PechaKucha! The event itself will take place on November 23. Calendar There are two PKNs on the agenda tonight (October 3), PKN Bilbao Vol. 13 and PKN Szczecin Vol. 1. Tomorrow, it's another big Thursday: PKN Pittsburgh Vol. 13, PKN Moncton Vol. 7, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 6, PKN Doha Vol. 6, PKN Vaxjo Vol. 12, PKN Kolding Vol. 18, and PKN New Orleans Vol. 7.

Presentations Our first presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93) covers three exhibition projects that Kate Thomson and Hironori Katagiri produced to support post-tsunami recovery. "Postcards From Japan" is an exhibition of A5-sized artworks by 22 Tohoku artists touring the world, so far shown in Edinburgh, New York, London, and Birmingham. "Postcards To Japan" includes over 470 works sent from all over the world to tour Tohoku, first shown at the Iwate Museum of Art, currently on show at Fukushima Museum of Art, next going to Minami Soma Museum and more informal venues along the coast of Tohoku. "TOHOKU-SCOTLAND" is an exhibition of sculpture, paintings, collage and prints by Scottish artists who took part in the Iwate Art Festival UK98 and artists from Tohoku shown in Edinburgh, UK. Vikram Divecha is an artist and advertising professional based in Dubai. In his presentation (from PKN Dubai Vol. 11), he shares with us his recent artistic project, Concbots, which has been inspired by Dubai and its ever-increasing levels of construction and urbanization. Posters and video Malaga's very first PKN is set for September -- the city is so new its city page on our site hasn't been activated yet -- and the poster above acts at a call to participate. The one of the additions today on our Tumblr blog, along with a poster for last week's PKN Risor Vol. 2. Below, a video promo for this Sunday's PKN Genoa Vol. 3. Photos We have two photo galleries to share today, with the two photos you see above taken at the recent PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 25 -- we sure love that giant screen they used to project the presentations.
Above, a few photos from the South Florida Gay News (Volume 3, Issue 26) for last week's PKN Miami Vol. 16, which revolved around the exhibition "GRAPHIC INTERVENTION - 25 Years of International AIDS Awareness Posters 1985–2010."
