New York City artist Katherine Ramos recreates powerful forces of nature in her series of illustrated disasters by harnessing a highly detailed, yet delicate technique.
Each piece is carefully handdrawn from lurid, real life events that include petulance, plague and earthquakes. Ramos then silkscreens, prints and carefully color inks her work, making each piece as unusual as the disasters that once unfolded.
Katherine Ramos has studied at New York University, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and The School of Visual Arts. Her illustrations have appeared in Double X, The New Yorker and io9.
Her work has been described as both haunting and beautiful, with subject matter that appeals to history buffs, science majors and those with a taste for the curious.
