twenty two Stunning Examples Of Animal Body Artwork


Many people really feel an especially close connection with our pet brethren, which is probably a big portion of why we find animal body art like this so appealing – these models, and the artists who color on them, create a figurative representation of the relationship we share with all life.

There are all sorts of things that body artists can draw on their human canvases, but organic animal forms seem to match best with the styles of our own bodies. Through these artists’ masterful illusions, the elegant curves of the models in these photos can become the arch of a giraffe’ s back, the smooth plus sleek flank of a tropical fish, or the nose of a wild gambling.
