Ornithology I

\ by Juan Fontanive

Fontanive is New York-based artist, utilising this fascinating book flipping machines to create the animated-like art. It brings the painting another level of presentation. His latest work is the series of Ornithology [see the previous work here.]

The movement of the bird is very surreal and pretty much alive. The book flipping machines have been adapted to many of his artworks like The Lake, the swimming fish, and Vivarium, the set of flying butterflies, in 2006 and 2014 respectively.
