Chris Berens creates new paintings for new young adult fiction book


Dutch painter Chris Berens’ work (featured in our book Hi Fructose Collected 3) can be described as storybook-like with a darker twist.

His light, airy paintings have a luminescence about them, as if his figures and the spaces they inhabit have a crystalline translucency that imbues them a magical-feeling ambiance.

Berens recently collaborated with best-selling young adult fiction author Kami Garcia on an illustration project. An artist herself, Garcia is a long-time admirer of Berens and asked him to create three new paintings to be reprinted in her forthcoming novel, Unmarked.

We bring you a first look at these new pieces before they debut in the book, which hits stores later this week.
