Swedish digital artist Kilian Eng is one of the hottest things going in illustration, and he’s getting his first monograph from Floating World Comics — and they’ll be holding an opening to celebrate on December 1st at FLoating World. Alas the artist will not be on hand. The book will be available at the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival on December 3.
Floating World Comics is proud to publish Object 5, the first monograph of illustration and graphic design work by Swedish artist, Kilian Eng. The book features over 60 full color pieces created over the last three years. The book will debut at Floating World Comics on Thursday December 1st and at the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Fest on December 3rd. The book is limited to 1000 copies worldwide. Ordering info will be available on the Floating World website shortly.
Kilian’s images present alternate worlds where the environment plays a great role. Many of these sequences present visual stories, without any text. This is connected to his growing interest in theatrical mise-en-scène and set design for film. He is fascinated with the details that can create these imaginative worlds; colors and lighting, dimensions and sounds. His inspiration comes from classic and futuristic architecture, surrealism, science fiction, as well as the different elements and shapes in natural and urban landscapes.
