For this week’s Artist Spotlight, we’d like to introduce illustrator Kristjana S Williams! Williams studied graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins and quickly gained critical acclaim as Creative Director of the lifestyle brand “Beyond the Valley” for 8 years. In 2011, she began creating fine art pieces, illustrating books, designing interiors items and more.
Many of Williams’ projects draw inspiration from nature, where her technique involves digitally and physically layering environmental designs to mirror the symmetry in all living things. Each piece is its own magical universe of exotic botanicals and vibrant animals. Williams’ work has become well known throughout the industry, winning numerous awards such as a D&AD award, Clio Award and a first prize at New York Festivals Grand Prix. Her work can be found at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Penhaligons perfumeries and various galleries and hotels nationally and internationally. Most recently she designed the album artwork for Coldplay’s new live album ‘A Head Full of Dreams: Live in Buenos Aires and Live in Sao Paulo’.
