24 Hringlaga Heart of London is a limited edition print by Kristjana Williams "Victorian London explodes with colour, life and vivacity in this exhilarating celebration of the very best of this incredible city. Upon first view, the iconic London skyline commands the eye. The emblematic symmetry of London Bridge astride a proud St Pauls; Nelson’s Column and Big Ben reaching skywards from the arching spheres of The Royal Albert Hall and London Eye, mirroring the circular composition. The 24 mile circumference abounds with colourful, joyful foliage and majestically adorned animals, weaving their way across this pulsating cityscape, tripping over icons and emblems that embody London in all its 32 boroughs. From turn of the century theatres and Art Deco dwellings, to vibrant Carnaby and the ancient City boundaries at its heart. Fantastical flying boats, a horse drawn carriage, ships under sail and steaming locomotives reflect the movement in this piece, but perhaps the most striking are the soaring Montgolfier style balloons, richly dressed and abundant in colour, traversing the suburbs, and reflecting the life, love and character of one of the world’s most beloved cities."

Kristjana Williams artist with Wychwood Art. Born in Reykjavik in 1974, Kristjana spent much of her childhood looking out over Iceland’s spartan landscape of black sand and frozen seas, dreaming of new worlds filled with abundant animal and plant life.This wanderlust fostered a love of maps and botanical engravings which, after completing her degree in graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins in London, became the foundation of Kristjana’s work. Described by the New York Times as part of the ‘new antiquarian movement’ her fine art pieces, prints, fashion and furniture see vintage illustrations of exotic animals and insects layered over lavish foliage and antique maps to reimagine fantastical new creatures and what she calls ‘wishful forests’.These whimsical two- and three-dimensional tableaus have won Kristjan many international awards including The Pent awards, D&D in book, Clio Award and first prize in the New York Festivals Grand Prix. Kristjana is currently working on a commission by the Victoria and Albert Museum for the new Alice in Wonderland exhibit starting June 2020. They are a long standing collaborator and we are about to do some further work with them for the new V&A in Dundee as well as a commissioned diorama about their beloved Library / Reading room in London.
