Animal Murals by Fiona Tang Appear to Leap from Gallery Walls

July 7, 2014

Christopher Jobson

fiona-1

Vancouver-based artist Fiona Tang creates large-scale murals of animals using charcoal, chalk pastel, and acrylic on paper that at first glance appear 3D. Tang makes use of a technique called trompe l’oeil where shadows and perspective within the two dimensional drawing are used to trick the viewer into thinking the piece is three dimensional. Tang recently graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and you can see more of her work over on Facebook. (via Juxtapoz, My Modern Met)

With just a few strokes of his calligraphy pen, London-based designer and illustrator Andrew Fox created this fun series of minimalistic animals. What a great exercise in the constraints of line and color, perhaps most famously illustrated in a similar exercise by Picasso back in the 1940s. See more over on Behance.

This beautiful series of animal illustrations by Milan-based designer Andrea Minini began as a design experiment to obtain complex shapes and depth starting with just a few lines. Using Adobe Illustrator, Minini created textured moiré patterns that give each illustration a surprising intensity. You can see more from this series over on Behance.

Netherlands-based artist Redmer Hoekstra draws fascinating composite illustrations that merge animals and everyday objects or machines, from a lizard with computer keyboard scales to an owl with books for wings. At times he even brings three or more forms together, as with a whale emerging from a submarine, the entirety of which has the appearance of a banana. Whether you regard the pieces as humorous or slightly disturbing, it’s hard to deny the ingenious way each creature is formed.

Hoekstra has more work over on Behance and you can pick up postcards, prints and other things in his shop.
