Disturbingly Surreal Animated GIFs by Henrique Lima

by Danny OldaPosted on

Henrique Lima works as an artist, illustrator and designer based in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  He often creates artwork as half of the drawing group known as Mulheres Barbadas or the Bearded Ladies.  For this series titled Mestre Fungo (which, if I’m up on my Portuguese, means “Fungus Master”), Lima took his illustration to the computer screen to create animated GIFs.  The series consists of a number of brightly colored and disturbingly surreal portraits.  Skin drips, stripes on clothing wander, ears and tongues endlessly flap – all as if nightmarish versions of the cartoons of our childhood.
