Artist Profile: Maria Christina Gantt (Nightwalker)

Cyprus Comic Con welcomes back illustrator Maria Christina Gantt (aka Nightwalker) to our Artists’ Alley!

Born in Cyprus, Maria has been pursuing her dreams in art ever since a young age. Her passion grew even more after being introduced to the world of video games and various animation series. The curiosity of what it takes to make a story come to life through the steps of concept art, character design and illustration, made Maria want to push her skills further in concept art and design. After graduating from high school, Maria studied Applied Multimedia Arts at the University of Nicosia Cyprus, completing also a Minor in Graphic Design and Illustration. After completing her studies, she continued to work as a freelancer multimedia artist and now has over 7 years of experience in the art industry.

You can find more of Maria’s work on Facebook, DeviantArt and Instagram.

Maria’s main goal is to someday work as an official concept artist for well-known animation and film industry companies, but until then, she keeps practicing in order to improve her skills even further. With an energy drink in one hand and a sketchbook and pencil in the other, this artist is always ready for any challenges the art world may bring!
