Artist Transforms Whales Into Transportation Devices

1  Roland Tamayo

Just about everyone has dreamed of how amazing it would be to ride on a bird’s back and fly through the sky, but that’s just not realistic…birds are too small. Whales, however, are enormous- some bigger than semi-trucks, so if we could turn their blowholes into steam pipes or attach sails to their backs, they would be the perfect fantasy ride through the sky. LA-based artist Roland Tamayo demonstrates what this might look like in a surreal series of whale art. The former concept artist in the gaming industry shifted gears to work on fine art and freelance work after the birth of his twin sons.
