You might recognize the work of Adam Batchelor from his drawings of birds with bags on their heads, which have been popular all over the internet lately. That’s how I discovered his strange animal drawings, and their absurdity stuck with me. Batchelor’s work is similar in style and concept to that of a favorite artist of mine, Josh Keyes, with animals in curious predicaments against bold white backgrounds, although Batchelor’s pieces are less photorealistic in style. Playful yet critical, Batchelor’s artwork examines the imbalance between humans and the natural world and how we as humans portray and understand ecology and the animal kingdom. (The Observation section of his site has a great collection of animal/nature photos.)
