Animal-Headed Humans by Oscar Delmar

by Danny OldaPosted on

At times people weasel their way out of things, do it like rabbits, chicken out and…you get the point.  Beyond these trite sayings, though, animalistic urges and actions feel deeply ingrained in each of us at times.  Artist Oscar Delmar seems to depict this literally in his aptly titled series Animal in Me.  These watercolor and graphite pieces depict a nude human body topped with the head of various animals.  As odd as the pairings may seem, each subject’s gesture and posture seems to match its corresponding animal.  The resulting creatures don’t appear as weird as they are intriguing.
