The world's seas and oceans, in the brightest of blues, flush through the continents in this post apocalyptic reimagining of the natural world. A kaleidoscope of colour whispers with other worldly energy, elevating the life within it. Determined clippers depict ancient trading routes, overseen by the watchful leopard, teasing monkey and wily croc, evolving species reclaiming their land.
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.
