Animal Illustrations: High Tech or Tribal?

These animal illustrations seem to have wandered out of some high-tech training facility, one where they engineer the latest and greatest creatures of the wild. Then again, they could have been created by a secret tribal society using their ancient knowledge and sacred patterns. Each face-forward portrait is composed of finely detailed patterns, many looking like printed circuit boards, others looking closer to patterns lifted from mandalas. The final creation is readable from far, and fascinating up close.

In fact each of these was created by Paris France based artist YoAz. This talented young artist has created animals from nearly every continent with his distinctly detailed style. As you’ll quickly find on his Tumblr, he doesn’t limit himself to just creating wild animals, but has a wide breadth of style and subject matter. You can find more of his portfolio on Behance, Facebook or Coroflot.
