About Kristian Williams
A Brisbane-born recipient of the Minister’s Award for Excellence in Art (2003), Kristian Williams' style celebrates bold colours, with unbridled lines - a signature of all his collections - one that heralds a revival of neo-expressionism meets high-end street art.
Always fascinated by the neo-expressionist movement, Kristian draws inspiration from the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Norris Embry; tapping into his own unique sense of artistic style, colour-coding and rhythm.
His work makes reference to the human condition, but also explores expressive directions that have created pieces of work that affirm the redemptive power of art in general and painting in particular.
On one end of the spectrum, his use of bold colours and violent emotive lines create very bold, statement pieces while other works are gentler, as they explore quirkiness – almost tongue in cheek humour of the human soul.
