What is Chromacon?

Chromacon is an indie festival of visual arts held in Auckland, New Zealand that celebrates the coming together of creative innovation, artistic excellence and community.

Freely open to the wider public, this premiere event connects all New Zealanders with the best homegrown illustrators, comic artists, designers, animators, videogame developers and more.

At Chromacon, you will find original artwork and creative projects from a range of media, styles, and genres. You will also be able to purchase self-published work such as prints, art books, comics or even originals directly from the creatives themselves.

“Chromacon represents the next logical step for New Zealand’s illustrative and comic arts.”

Greg Broadmore, Weta Workshop & Creator of Dr. Grordbort

The intimate nature of the event offers you the chance to meet and connect with artists you may already admire or others creating new and exciting work that you weren’t aware of.

Furthermore, we will be hosting live events, drawing/painting demos, and artist talks/ panels on a variety of subjects throughout the day.

Whether you’re a fledgling artist yourself or simply curious about the amazing original artworks created right here in New Zealand, everyone’s welcome!
