Kristjana S Williams Biography
This has been a momentous year for artist Kristjana S Williams, sweeping the awards board, the work is rapidly gaining the prominence it deserves, confounding all who see it with its mystical, magical beauty and strange resonances. Icelander Kristjana is fascinated with maps, with mythical creatures and with Victorian engravings, which she samples, mixes and matches to create images that take hold and wont let go. Collaborations with audio specialist Sennheiser and her corporate identity work for The Connaught Hotel demonstrate the range of depth of her unique imagination. Intrinsically inspiration lies heavily with layering nature upon nature and the symmetry in all things living which stems from the artists childhood in Iceland. When growing up the artist found nature there stark and unforgiving. Never seeing trees or colourful butterflies or exotic flowers – everything seemed grey. Now in retrospect, Kristjanafeels the opposite, the colours and landscape are like nowhere else in the world. Each piece created by the artist is its own universe of botanicals, atmosphere and animals, each born and grown from the things that have inspired her since being a child. With an exhibition alongside the likes of Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol and Jeff Koons at Shapero Rare Books in Mayfair and products flying out of a huge array of stores worldwide, it seems that the unique and continually evolving work of Kristjana S Williams will continue grow and develop for years to come.
