Kristian Olson is an award winning illustrator and graphic designer living in Los Angeles, California. His unusual and often bizarre illustration style is the product of years of experimentation with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and traditional media. The strange, decorative subjects in his work reflect an other-wordly sense of mystery, fascination, fear and delight. Often lurking in the background of his imaginative illustrations are hidden words and stories, coded or obscured from the viewer's eye, adding to this sense of mystery. And although his artistic influences are wide and varied, much of his inspiration comes from a constant curiosity about the world around him.

When Kristian isn't knee-deep in Photoshop he is often refueling his creativity by camping and hiking in the mountains or surfing at the beach. Read Less

"I thank Kristian for his professionalism, commitment, and willingness to address input. He had a great attitude throughout our project. All attributes, as well as his skills as an illustrator, were greatly appreciated".

-Jeanette Aramburu, Tim Harris Design


"Kristian Olson's art is filled with layers of distinct information, challenging the viewer to look closer, to befriend his alien subjects without fear. He moved from a career in graphic design to a recognized illustrator and fine artist in three short years displaying an uncommon maturity few illustrators can display after such a brief time... There's nothing tame about Kristian; his work takes risks which beg his clients take equal risk. Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, GQ, Fortune, The Progressive, V Life, Runners World, Random House, MacMillan, Universal Music and Wired are just a few who have reaped the rewards".

- Charles Hively, 3 x 3 Magazine


"Kristian's intricate and unique style of illustration has marked him out as a man to watch... his creations make heads turn".

-Debbi Allen, Advanced Photoshop Magazine


"Kristian Olson’s art get’s right under my skin and crawls around, freaking me out till I look away. For me, the magnetic attraction of his vision is measured in G-forces. Gotta love it".
