Prizewinning digital artist Kilian Eng (DW Design) has a Bachelor and Masters in Graphic Design & Illustration from Konstfack, University of Arts Craft & Design in Stockholm and has won numerous awards for his illustrative work. Kilian’s futuristic images present dreamlike 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.
“I like to tell stories in my work and invite people to make up their own stories in response. Even if an image is shown as a single piece and not part of a series, the viewer and I need to be able to fantasize about what might happen before and after the exact moment frozen in the picture. This creative engagement helps me give substance to the worlds my pictures depict, and lets me create new scenarios.”
