Ricardo Solis shows us how animals got their colours and stripes

Mexican artist Ricardo Solis was attracted to art and nature as a young boy, which may explain his series of animal drawings and paintings that try to understand evolution. From a rhino being created out of terracotta to a zebra’s stripes being attached by tiny workmen, Solis’ art allows us to open our minds and question the world around us.

It also unleashes the imagination – that grizzly bear being spun out of wool is just incredible.
