Anatomical Murals of Bisected Animals by Street Artist Nychos

March 14, 2017

Kate Sierzputowski

Street artist Nychos paints large murals of bisected animals and humans, large works that allow you to take a peek inside their anatomical structure. These works include extremely detailed bone and vein structures, such as the Tyrannosaurus rex he painted in Oakland, California late last year. Most recently he has been on a tour through Australia where he has made stops in both Sydney and Melbourne to put up works.

Nychos opened a solo exhibition of works on paper with Juddy Roller Gallery in Melbourne during this tour titled Monochrome Organism on March 10. You can see more of his public and canvas-based paintings on his Instagram and Facebook. (via This Isn’t Happiness)

Unsettling Illustrations of Tangled Flora and Fauna Beings by Alex Kuno

March 8, 2017

Christopher Jobson

Minneapolis-based artist Alex Kuno imagines a world of twisted organic beings that borrow elements of plant life, anatomy, and the natural world. The artist admits that his illustrations are likely to creep some people out, but purposefully includes ideas that highlight life and growth, creating a dichotomy of revulsion and delight as the viewer carefully untangles each artwork. The mixed-media drawings are made primarily using ink, watercolor, graphite and chalk. You can see more of Kuno’s artwork on Instagram and limited edition prints are available in his shop.

New Geometric Paper Cats and Other Creatures by Estudio Guardabosques

February 27, 2017

Christopher Jobson

Estudio Guardabosques (previously) is a Buenos Aires-based design and illustration studio consisting of Carolina Silvero and Juan Nicolás Elizalde. The duo create a wide range of paper objects for editorial, artistic, and personal experimentation, each infused with geometric flair and a cheeky sense of humor. Seen here are a number of projects from the last year or so including an installation titled Gatos Furiosos featuring a group of ambivalent felines as they destroy an entire city that was built for the Furious Drawing Festival.

Arabic Words Illustrated to Match Their Literal Meaning by Mahmoud Tammam

February 21, 2017

Kate Sierzputowski

“Cat”, “Duck”, “Dog”, “Fox”.

Egypt-based graphic designer Mahmoud Tammam creates simple modifications of Arabic words, transforming the language into visual representations of their meaning. The words Tammam chooses to design are often animals, turning long slopes into a llama’s neck, or a series of curves into an octopus’s tentacles. By creating these pictorial translations he allows the words to be understood by those not familiar or well-versed with the Arabic language, a minimal gesture that leads to a much greater understanding.

You can see more examples of Tammam’s illustrated language on his Instagram and Behance. (via My Modern Met)

New Impossibly Intricate Embroideries by Chloe Giordano

January 19, 2017

Christopher Jobson

We continue to be enthralled by the work of Chloe Giordano (previously here and here) who produces everything from tiny coin-sized depictions of woodland creatures to entire book covers typography and all. The Oxford-based illustrator is entirely self-taught, learning her craft “through a lot of trying things out and messing them up.” Each piece is deeply connected to her pencil drawings, as she works out many of the details on paper before turning to thread. Giordano frequently fields questions on her Tumblr and you can follow more of her progress on Instagram.

New Surreal Wildlife Paintings by Tiffany Bozic

December 9, 2016

Self-taught artist Tiffany Bozic (previously) paints nature in a way that is both direct and obscure, producing animals with the precision of a tightly rendered nature illustration, while simultaneously escaping the form’s limitations. Her subject matter typically revolves around forest creatures and their environment, while occasionally including creatures and plants such as amoeba-like jellyfish, creepy insects, and exotic flowers. These diverse sects of the natural world combine in ways that are not natural at all—a deer’s soft hair appearing as moss in one work while a skunk gallantly balances on top of a hovering botanical bouquet in another.

Bozic is represented by Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC where she has an upcoming solo exhibition next fall. You can see more of her work on her Instagram and buy select prints from her website.
