This Week’s Art Inspiration: Animal Art


Here’s this week’s Art Inspiration Hit List–a few links to wonderful artwork from around the interweb to get you thinking, dreaming, and creating.

This week’s focus is Animal Art–-3 different artists using animals as their subject matter in 3 very different ways but all imply a  story or mythic feeling. I think that’s so interesting.

I hope they inspire you to carry your own ideas forward into your own unique new territory.

Do these artists speak to you?

Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments!

“The Art of Yong Ho Ji – Recycled Tire Sculptures”

Mythic and monumental, these sculptures are not only gorgeous, but somehow, being made out of old tires, they really bring to mind the impact of human culture on the animal kingdom.

  1. Hi Sarah,
    They do speak to me. I love the colors in the first one and the striking white bird amid all that domesticity. And the horse made of tires is wonderful. The third one is so real, I wonder if it is taxidermy. It is a little visceral. Sort of gives me the willies, but I like what they did with the imagery.
    Hope you are well!
