IKON IMAGES  is pleased to present 3 of the most well-known illustrators/sculptors working in the fantasy and  horror genres today. Their innovative styles and techniques have garnered them work in film, books, and more.
The pieces completed for this show are without the hindrances of an art director telling them what and how to create the piece.  
Each artist has their own ritual for bringing forth their innate essence of who they are as creators. The exhibition seeks to explore the artists ritual and journey to artistic fruition, and ultimately, theirs and our satisfaction. MATURE Audiences Only.

Forever Fairytales, Fables of Olde

Banner image Queen Bea(C) James Christensen

Opening on April 27th from 6-9pm. in collaboration with  Peffer Gallery, Canton, Oh, "Forever Fairytales" will feature limited edition prints from 20th and 21st century fantasy illustrators Scott Gustafson, James Gurney, and the late James Christensen.
These high quality prints all have a Certificate of Authenticity from The Greenwich Workshop.

SCOTT GUSTASFON'S art style is inspired by the Golden Age of American Illustration. Due to this, his work has a fairytale-like appearance and many of his illustrations feature fantastical and Biblical characters settings. To learn more about the artist go to his website; http://www.scottgustafson.com

JAMES GURNEY is an artist and author best known for his illustrated book series Dinotopia, which is presented in the form of a 19th-century explorer’s journal from an island utopia cohabited by humans and dinosaurs. To learn more go to http://jamesgurney.com/site/

JAMES CHRISTENSEN said his inspirations were myths, fables, fantasies, and tales of imagination. He published more than three books, with many of his works appearing in many more. Christensen has published more than three books, with many of his works appearing in many more. His first book, A Journey of the Imagination: The Art of James Christensen,was printed in 1994 to great acclaim. His second, Voyage of the Basset (October 1996), contains a frame story for a great deal of original work. His third book, Rhymes & Reasons, was published in May 1997. Christensen also illustrated A Shakespeare Sketchbook (May 2001) with text by Renwick St. James. While not employed in all his paintings, his trademarks were flying or floating fish, often on a leash. Sadly Mr. Christensen passed away in early 2017. His work will continue to enchant us and be an inspiration of generations of artists and collectors to come. To learn more go to;
