Presenting the formidable talent of Kent Williams. Working simultaneously as a painter and as a graphic novel artist (amongst other pursuits), he has been contributing to comics since the the early 80s. In 2005 he worked with filmmaker Darren Aronofsky to create The Fountain graphic novel. His expressive brush work attentively combine realism and abstraction. Often in dream-like surrounding, his central characters largely seem to be mid-narrative. I have always seen a strong Egon Schiele influence in Williams’ work, which is especially evident when looking at his pencil work. Keep up-to-date with Williams by checking out his website and blog.
