David Jien
The Tale of the Inner Struggle

June 18 2021

I feel like whatever I say about the work of David Jien it will only take away from the unfiltered experience. Only so much, the sense that you’re looking at a connected world is true. Jien’s exquisite works on paper unfold a monumental saga of Whoriders and their adversaries, the Lizardmen.

This narrative reflects the eternal human struggle for the right path in life, accompanied by our demons. Jien has found a mesmerizing way to communicate to us what he believes to be true in life.

I feel that everyone at some point in their lives has to deal with an inner struggle. My drawings are my inner struggles manifested through a cast of characters. I am a Whorider, I am a Lizardman.David Jien
