In a world where minimalism seems to be the preferred aesthetic, Icelandic born artist Kristjana S Williams shatters the mould with beautiful chaos. Her intricate, large-scale and three-dimensional works of art - as well as prints, wallpaper and furniture - flaunt bright vibrancy and eye-catching detail.
The devil is truly in the detail with intricately crafted art pieces that evoke constant discovery and a sense of fantasy. Her wildly colourful and striking pieces centre on the symmetry of living things layered with paper, Victorian engravings, photographs, leaves, twigs and other miscellaneous objects.
Upon intimate viewing, one is drawn into an immersive and investigative experience discovering exotic creatures and curious features. Birds adorned with butterfly wings and owls parading with antlers live delightfully within her work.
Kristjana Williams’ work has been featured in the Shanghai Exhibition Centre, The V&A London Design Festival as well as other galleries throughout the world. She has been well received in the art community winning the Dulux “Best Use of Colour” Award, a D&AD Award, a New York Festivals Grand Prix & First Prize, and she was shortlisted for the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.
