Hybrid Animals by Nicholas Di Genova

November 14, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Toronto-based artist Nicholas Di Genova illustrates incredible hybrid creatures using nothing more than ink on paper. His terrifying amalgams of reptiles, mammals, aquatic and plant life often feature densely compacted textures of hair and scales that seem to multiply like fractals on the surface of the animal’s skin. Nicholas opened a solo show last week at Galerie Dukan Hourdequin in Paris which will be up through December 3. The images above are amazing, but head over to his Tumblr to see them in more detail.
