There is mystery to the unseen — in those empty spaces. A road trails off. A building stands, the horizon blocked from sight. UK based illustrator Thomas Danthony deals in these mysteries. Danthony’s illustrations show you only so much, only a glimpse of the precipice. The figure’s shadow hunches forward, lurking off screen. The final expanse of a nameless ocean liner. The glint of a building exposed in moonlight. No matter the size of the canvas, each piece Danthony creates feels epic. Life revealed at its grandest scale.
His figures move as silhouettes, hidden yet seen. In Danthony’s illustrations, these characters are as integral to the landscape as the architecture — or perhaps, the architecture is as much a priority as man. Each element is rendered perfect and clean. Colors blend, fade. Become each other.
Danthony’s work is all mood. He shows us a sophisticated world, thrilling and exotic. He gives us a world to admire.
