Human, animal, fairytale or nightmare? The boundaries are blurred in Ruben Ireland's work. The graphic artist and illustrator merges traditional techniques with digital processes to create haunting, broodingly beautiful images.

Austere colour palettes combined with uncomplicated compositions underpin the somber, otherworldly atmosphere of each piece.
