Chris Fowler is an English illustrator with a penchant for pairing vivid colors with fantastical images, creating an aura that is simultaneously alluring and disturbing.

Looking through Chris Fowler's portfolio, it's apparent that in addition to his deft skill for blending beautiful hues with surrealist imagery, he also excels at creating illustrations that display versatility without losing an ounce of his trademark style.

One image in the Chris Fowler portfolio shows a massive landscape, partly colored with effusive, bright tones, and the rest left uncolored. Another image shows a man with his eyes closed, his see-through brain visible and emanating bright colors that could serve as brainwaves, flanked by animals with their arms extended. This dichotomy in imagery may strike some as unusual, but both images maintain the best parts of Chris Fowler's work -- absurdism, feeling generated through color and stylistic originality.
