British illustrator Sam Richwood blends both sparse and lush details into his works. In the “Galaxy Garden” series, the futurescapes and romanticism of his scenes benefit from both approaches. The artist says that he hopes his worlds are able to “suggest a place beyond the canvas.”
“Aesthetically, I’ve always wanted to create things that look like things,” the artist says. “The people in my paintings have become less academic over time but they still act as a familiar milestone for me. All I have to do then is borrow from my library of random inspirations, motifs and tiny experiences to create the landscape around them.”
