about christian azolan
Hailing from the small Indian Ocean island Mahe in the Seychelles, Christian is a visual digital artist who specialises in abstract and low-high polygon art.
He is known for his ability to capture detail in polygon that push boundaries to merge drawing and illustration into a new visual art form.
Christian was educated in the UK and calls London home. After completing a degree in fashion design at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication he entered the corporate arena, working for large global companies as a brand marketer and content specialist.
At the start of the UK pandemic lockdown when the world was thrown into disarray and confusion, Christian decided to take the leap and pursue a full-time career creating and telling visual stories and ideas through his art.
Christian's art is heavily influenced by the complex mesh of 3D, line drawing, bright colours, and tonal matching. His current work is inspired by people, environments and nature and his new limited edition series titled 'The Birds' released on 22nd October 2020 plays on the themes of freedom, fantasy and escapism in flight, against the backdrop of the ongoing global pandemic and lockdown measures.
'There have been times in my life where I wish I had the wings so I could fly away, and flow with the ever-changing wind to a new destination and live out new adventures.'
His Light Fantastica series is about the power and beauty of illumination and ‘A Loyal Heart’ from his debut print series titled Matters of the Heart is one of his most successful artwork to date. This print is one of his best selling limited edition prints and is about love, friendship and trust.
He has also added 4 new artworks to the series while being inspired by seaside towns and fishing villages on the Cornish coast. His most popular abstract prints from the new series include Padstow, St Ives, Night Lights, and Stars.
All of Christian’s prints are printed in London on the finest Giclée Hahnemühle Bamboo or Giclée EPSON archival Fine Art paper. His professional art prints are made using the very best high definition equipment and finest materials, all overseen by master printers. Every print comes with a certificate of authenticity, signature, hologram and print edition number.
Christian has also collaborated with intimate jewellery designer Ruth Melbourne on 'Intimacy'- a micro 3 colour way limited edition series to be showcased in private intimate spaces at home.
Christian has been featured in national, local, business news publications like the Metro, Channel 4, BBC, Daily Mail, Huffington Post, Mail Online, Business Daily and Reuters International.
In addition to his website, his limited edition artwork is available on Saatchi Art, Handmade on Amazon and soon on Wayfair UK and Germany with his 'open print' editions on demand via Fy!
'I believe that we should always be looking closer at our surroundings to really see them, things are far more complex and complicated than we could ever imagine.'
