Haunted' is an official The Witcher art print by artist Christopher Shy (Studio Ronin), made under official license from CD PROJEKT RED. The artwork and the print belong to the official Witcher 3 fine art collection by Cook and Becker.
Christopher Shy is an artist, visual designer and concept artists whose work you can find both in art galleries as well as posters and book covers. He is probably best known for his amazing film posters and art for horror and science fiction films such as Mandy, The Thing, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Aliens, Friday the 13th (2009) and Star Wars. In the game industry he is best known for the beautiful graphic novels he made for EA for the scifi horror game Death Space.
Christopher Shy created the portrait 'Haunted' in his characteristic style: dark, cinematic, a vertical, triangular composition and with a combination of digital paint strokes and photo collage. You could easily see his artwork double a promotional poster for Netflix's new Witcher series. It's a fascinating portrait of monster hunter Geralt and Child of Prophecy Ciri who are surrounded by iconic The Witcher monsters such as the Leshen, The Toad Prince, Plague Maidens and Ghouls in one of the deepest forests of The Northern Realms.
The artwork 'Haunted' lends itself to multiple interpretations. It clearly shows Geralt of Rivia as the heroic and iconic monster slayer in the dark fantasy universe of The Witcher. But the work of art also has something melancholic and dreamlike. Ciri in particular, has been illuminated and positioned in such way that she could also be Geralt's memory, while he overlooks a battlefield of slain monsters and contracts that make up the life of a Witcher.
This makes 'Haunted' a work of art that fits perfectly into the ambiguous, dark fairy-tale Witcher universe with its northern European and Slavic roots and which has been captured so well in books, video games and a Netflix series.
