Kristjana S Williams

Kristjana S Williams is an artist whose experience spans illustration, interiors, fashion and design.  Kristjana is a regular exhibitor at the London Design Festival, exhibitions include; 'An Interactive Print Journey' comprising of four large scale murals at the Victoria and Albert Museum and a solo show at Shapero Rare Books where Kristjana's prints sat alongside the masters of victorian engravings.  In Autumn/Winter 2012 Kristjana was asked to show her new collection at the Paul Smith Globe Store where the prints sold in record numbers.  The beginning of 2013 saw the work receive Highly Commended for 'Best Use of Colour in the Arts' at the Dulux Colour Awards, completing a commission for Osborne and Little and art directed Wilderness Festival for the third year running.

The illustrations juxtapose strong graphic lines with intricate victorian engravings creating incredibly striking and unique art work.  Comprising of very intricate collages of material that have been collected from victorian engravings, photographs taken, found objects and real leafs and twigs.  A limited selection have been delicately hand-gold leaved in order to create an utterly desirable and innovative piece of work. 

Kristjana is mostly inspired by nature upon nature 'the symmetry in all things living' which stems from her childhood in Iceland.  As a child growing up amongst a stark landscape, always craving after colour and natural wonders.  However, now in reminiscing she can see the true unique beauty in her home land which adds ever more inspiration.
