OBJECT 15 Works by Kilian Eng
Object 15 is the third collection in Kilian Eng’s successful monograph series, following the acclaimed books Object 5 and Object 10.
Kilian’s images present alternate worlds where the environment plays a great role. Many of these sequences present visual stories, without any text. 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, and science fiction as well as natural and urban landscapes. This volume collects the most intricate and detailed visions that Kilian has created to date.
“Since most of the work in the book has been drawn in the computer environment I was glad and surprised how the images opened up in a new way when I saw them in the printed form. There is definitely something happening when you can see the work on paper instead of on the screen. It is really the ultimate way to look and get to know the artwork.” —Kilian Eng
“Swedish illustrator Kilian Eng is the natural heir to the Moebius throne of staggering sci-fi artwork.” —It’s Nice That
“Eng’s drawings show the artist as architect. As the omniscient voice controlling a self-created world.” —Chris Jalufka, Evil Tender
“Kilian Eng’s Futuristic Backdrops Contain Mystery, Engrossing Detail” –Hi Fructose
“His work is visually arresting as is his use of color schemes to entice the viewer.” –Dangerous Minds
