Unraveling animals by Jaume Montserrat

These creative illustrations from the Emptyland series are from Barcelona-based artist Jaume Montserrat. To understand how Montserrat came up with his idea, you have to get inside the mind of the artist: ‘While on a flight back home from South America to Spain-Montserrat falls asleep and imagines waking up on an island where he lives for 29 days with other animals.

He explains: ‘On this island, there was only one animal from each specimen [kind of like Noah’s Ark]. All of them were empty, asexual and immortal. They didn’t need to hunt, nor were they scared of being hunted – so there was a perfect symbiosis. He and the wildlife lives free from worris, and that empty paradise is what sparked these images’.
