De tous temps, les animaux ont été une source d’inspiration pour les artistes. Chaque animal a un trait de caractère, une émotion et une histoire à raconter. Sur Instagram, les artistes ont fait des bêtes leurs muses et le résultat est au rendez-vous ! 

Moult artistes ont su apprivoiser et exploiter le potentiel de nos amies les bêtes. Parmi ces amoureux de l’art, le photographe Randal Ford.  Son objectif : célébrer les diverses personnalités du royaume animal par le biais de portraits minimalistes. Chimpanzé, tigre, lion, flamant rose… Tous se prêtent au jeu en prenant assurément la pose. Ses clichés ont été commandés et rassemblés dans le monde entier. Le fruit de son travail est à retrouver sur Animal Portrait Collection ou sur sa page Instagram @mrfordskingdom !

Un artiste engagé

Le paper artist Patrick Cabral, un Philippin, réalise en découpant papier, des portraits ultra-réalistes d’animaux en voie de disparition. Un travail de fourmi, mêlant délicatesse et dextérité. 50% de l’argent qu’il récolte en vendant ses oeuvres est reversé à l’association WWF. Une idée qui lui est venue après avoir vu le film documentaire co-produit par Leonardo DiCaprio Before the Flood qui aborde le thème du changement climatique. Rendez-vous sur sur Instagram @darkgravity pour voir ces belles « pièces de dentelle ». Le résultat est époustouflant !

First of 3 animal sculpture that I made for @starbucksph . Each animals represent the regions where they harvest coffee beans. This is a 110cm x 110cm x 20cm Sumatran Tiger. This is probably the hardest project we ever produced to date. And by « we » I mean @origamidreamer and I. For almost 2 months we have been laboring on the details. There are layers that took 7 hours to prime. And a couple of 7 hours more to apply the actual paint. For a couple of months we accepted our fate which is a never ending loop of painting, sanding and airbrushing. It’s like living in the Groundhog day. Our patience, mental and physical strength was really tested on this project but we knew that it will all be worth it in the end. And true enough, once we successfully hang it on the wall, all we are left is pride on what we had accomplished. We are not really ready for this project. We don’t even have a big space to work on these pieces. There was a time that I really miss being in the province because there all we have is space 🙂 We had to move the production to my in-laws garage 2 weeks before the deadline because we need space to airbrush the gold layers. I feel like we get tested more when we had big projects. There’s a lot of unexpected surprises. Like that time when a day before the deadline, the bank accidentally debited a big amount of money on my account, right when I needed extra cash the most, the universe decided to throw a curve ball 🙂 I was just thinking that I wouldn’t let it bother me because I don’t want to work angry because that could lead to more disaster. As the good book says, accept the things that you cannot change 🙂 I think this experience makes us better artist. My wife is really learning how to work… like really, really work and I am starting to let people in and accept that I can’t go on doing things on my own. I think we came out better after this project and we are excited to work on even bigger pieces. The goal is to produce pieces made of real gold next year. So if you have a spare gold bars lying around, please hit me up 🙂 You can check out this artwork at Starbucks Reserve SM North Towers
