The Guest – Original Art

A dreamy fantasy piece in a large postcard format, created for the 6th edition of Gallery Nucleus’ classic show ‘Power in Numbers’.

‘The Guest’ was selected among many amazing artworks to be displayed at Gallery Nucleus (Alhambra, California) in November 2021. It is now available for sale in Gallery Nucleus’ online store.


For ‘The Guest’ I have set out to summon a magical atmosphere with a hint of expectancy – through the composition, the characters’ relationships, the medium and the colours.

I have my ideas about what the title means but it is also hopefully kind of mysterious, so that you, the viewer, can be intrigued, and devise your own stories about how it relates to the illustration :)

The striking pink watercolour used in ‘The Guest’ is very difficult to scan and even more to replicate in print. It can only be fully experienced when viewing the original work!

Medium: Coloured pencils, ink, watercolour on 300-gsm (140 lbs), cold-pressed watercolour paper

Size: 5″ x 7″ (about 12.7 cm x 17.8 cm)
