German Artist Anja Wulfing & huMom both love old photographs. I heard huMom once say that when she finds old photos in used books or thrown away she feels a certain need to help keep the memory of those subjects alive by upcycling them into a new form of artistic creation.
Artist Anja Wulfing felt the same way & found herself painting larger than life animals in the background of the human subjects that looked realistic. Soon she started to mix human-animal hybrids. They too felt familiar & natural. From there she moved on to painting animal heads on top of the people in the photos. Some feel her dog-headed humans are her most endearing pieces.
Anja Wulfing states, “These creatures have become gentle creatures of some different but potential reality. A bit of fantasy, mythical creatures, humor, facts & fiction. If our existence is a result of successive coincidences, what if a very early ancestor had turned ‘right instead of left’? Who knows how we would have been looking like today?”
Above are a few of the many pieces she has created but you pawsitively must go to Anja Wilfing site to see more.
Bark out which one barks to you; we love to hear from you.
Have a pawsome weekend.
