The striking and unique visuals of London artist Christian Ward are drawing a lot of attention and buzz at the moment. His work is an explosive mix of comic inspired studies and colorful psychedelic illustrations.
Ward has developed a fetish for drawing mysterious femme fatales, psychedelic mind clouds and men in capes trying to look dangerous. He is influenced by comic art and contemporary fine art as much as he is graffiti and graphics as well as by art nouveau and film.
Ward’s intense, bold visuals are incredibly detailed with a multitude of layers, subtle textures and fine line work.
His portfolio has some other stunningly beautiful pieces with his portrait work being a key highlight.
