ERIK KIRCHNER ART

Face of Balaam

Cover Art

Cover art for Swiss metal band Xaon. The band came to me in search of a colorful cover that displayed a character that could fit within their lyrical universe. I specifically wanted this character, Balaam, to appear petrified of old age. He had lost his crown and his sight, but not his knowledge of the world he has traveled endlessly. Over the years, he has slowly become one with the organic matter and beings of his realm.

Client: Xaon

Release Date: October 16, 2016
