The story behind the artwork
Upon first view, iconic buildings from some of the world's major cities command the eye, while the circular world map above explodes with colour, life and vivacity. Colourful, joyful foliage and vivid butterflies weave their way across the globe, with soaring Montgolfier style balloons, richly dressed and abundant in colour, traverse the skies.
The natural world has always been really important to Kristjana. Growing up in her native Iceland, she was immersed in a stark and unforgiving spartan landscape, surrounded by a muted yet extraordinary palette of blacks, whites and greys. Reactively, Kristjana takes great inspiration from the towering scale of trees and buildings, and the exotic vibrancy of flora and fauna from more temperate climates around the globe. Her appreciation of Iceland's mesmeric monochrome beauty combined with her discovery of the more eye popping colours within nature, bring to life her unique map artworks, abundant with fantastical tropical creatures and vibrant flora and fauna.
