Incubation 2.0 – Directing Animated Feature Film
Disney DreamWorks HBO

Rustam Hasanov is an interdisciplinary artist working in Los Angeles. At the core of his philosophy is the emphasis on ideas and context as the guide to all aesthetic representation. Working from complex to simple to create bold, fun, and surreal work just on the border of painterly and graphic. His aspiration is to mix ideas with experiences and turn them into sublime, iconic moments that stay within your mind’s eye.

As a lead artist and art-director Rustam’s design practice extends to many productions and collaborative projects that cross industry lines. Helping create award winning work for such clients as HBO, Disney, Dreamworks, Guillermo Del Toro, and Jay Z.
