Hand-drawn visionary art

Colorful meditations by Chriszka. Mind-expanding artwork for your walls that will pull you in, cheer you up and remind you what the world (and your dreams) really look like.

Currently working on this:

Sou Filho da Rainha Yemanja!

The ocean of The Sun Machine. Definitely the hardest part of the drawing to finish.

The night trees

Each artwork has taken between 40 to 85 hours to complete. In our digitalized world we need to dedicate ourselves to fully absorbing work that slows us down.

Peaceful night visions.

Detail from Reconnecting with the Master Magicians. The drawings depict the world behind our physical world. It's constantly communicating with us. Or trying to.

Lasers and ravers.

I initially wanted to put a death metal concert in this drawing (for many good reasons), but it TOTALLY ended up as a rave. What can you do. :) Drawings have their own life.

Spring feelings.

It's not all trees and flowers. There's also a Space Invader in there. I initially wanted to draw the main character from the Commodore 64 game Aztec Challenge, because my brother and I used to play that game a lot. I skipped that idea, though. Not because I thought the reference would be too obscure for most people. I had simply run out of space in that particular spot. And the coloring would be wrong. And so: A Space Invader.

Cooperations: Slow Walking Man

I am doing the covers for Al Lindrum's upcoming album, LIFE. This is the cover for the 6th track, Slow Walking Man, out on EKG Musik. The track is about keeping a steady, relaxed pace in order to make it over the mountain.

Slow Walking Man: Work in progress

Slow Walking Man cover, continued: I wanted to draw the slow walk to the mountain, but also the complication of the mountain, and what comes after that, which could very well end up opening up even more demanding and time-consuming roads and labyrinths. It ended up being a very time-consuming piece.

Also: This is what it looks like when I move my work space outside.

Early work

I recently found a sketchbook with a bunch of drawings I did when I was 11. This one is called "The world seen through the eyes of the glasses of the wizard!" (including the exclamation mark). I am clearly the same person.
