Floating World Comics is proud to republish the out-of-print Object 5, the first monograph of illustration and graphic design work by Swedish artist, Kilian Eng. This new edition is a European album hardcover printed at the same size as Object 10. We have also included 16 new pages of artwork to make this the definitive collection of Kilian’s early work.
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. Although this book is non-narrative the images flow in a way that takes the reader on a journey through Kilian’s worlds.
