Czech-born, Ankara-educated artist Murat Sayginer previously wowed us with his psychedelic posthuman portraits, and now has done it again with animal portraits of a similar nature. Animals is a collection of 72 surreal collages made with images from stock photos. The dreamlike images rely on non sequiturs for their surrealism: for instance, a peacock with a third eye, a cheetah with a gold trophy, and a lion with a king’s medal. See some portraits from Animals below, and take a look at the suite of all 72 here.
