Today’s featured artist is Niklas Åkerblad, a watercolor artist from Sweden. Drawing on Japanese mythology, his paintings are strong, vivid, and otherworldly.
Though primarily a watercolor painter, this designer also utilizes pen and ink as well as the digital medium to create stunning imagery. With bold bright colors and a strong, confident line quality, the artist captures the viewer’s attention and draws them into the Japanese symbolism.
Also a musician, Åkerblad creates the artwork for his own albums to emphasize his eclectic style in both mediums. To see more of his dynamic work, check out his portfolio site here.
