'Waterworld 2017’ is an Archival Giclée Print by fine artist Kristjana S Williams. Printed onto 300gsm Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 175 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
The art of cartography features heavily in the work of Icelandic born artist Kristjana S Williams. With a keen eye for Victorian art and illustration, Williams has mastered a blending of the old world with the new: using modern printing techniques, Williams reimagines the art of the past with a twenty-first century flare, creating unique and strikingly beautiful prints.
In ‘Waterworld 2017’ Williams uses an antiquated shipping route map as her background, adding a bright blue, cyan wash to the sea. Around the edges Williams has crowded the print with a host of exotic creatures and tropical plants: etched monkeys swing from the top of the map, pop-coloured ferns sprout form the edges, and one or two of Williams’ iconic butterflies can be spotted amongst the foliage.
