Artist Guest of Honor
Iris Compiet is an award winning traditional artist and Illustrator from the Netherlands. Drawing inspiration from European folklore, mythology, fairytales, ghost stories and anything from tombstones, Victorian photography to popular movies and music she explores the depths of darkness to find the light.
Storytelling is an essential part of her artwork, and as an artist she strives to lure in the spectator, to make them feel a connection to the work and open a gateway to their imagination to ignite it even further. She is the creator of a world called Faeries of the Faultlines, a book which has been published by Eye of Newt Books in 2021. She has worked for clients such as Netflix, Magic the Gathering, Harper Collins and Insight Editions for which she illustrated the Dark Crystal Bestiary and the Labyrinth Bestiary.
“Iris Compiet’s work is an astonishing and masterful revelation of the Faery Realms. She is an artist who, with stunning alacrity, reveals the fleeting personalities of the normally unseen.”
— Brian Froud
