Animals tell Stories in Illustrations

I had just as much fun picking the images for this post, as I did naming them.

Italian artist Andy Saputo has been living in the US since the age of 4. His work has very definitive fantasy and surreal trend flowing through it.

Most of these illustrations depict animals and that is another reason why I like his work so much.

Taking concepts that most people perceive and understand a certain way,  then turns them upside down. This gives our view of the world and the way we see it a jolt.

It makes us questions the things that we originally take for granted. It focuses our attention by requiring a more in-depth view, it gives also a greater appreciation for everything that surrounds our person.

See if my words make sense in the drawings below.
