Many artists have tried to show relationship between the natural world and humans, but Flora Borsi showed us a unique and fresh perspective that we haven’t seen before. It’s called “Animeyed”, and it blew us away!
In a series of Animorph-esque self-portraits where she marries the right side of her face with an animal’s face as the other half, the beauty and success of Flora’s project comes from meticulous attention to detail and observation. “I observed the angle, lighting, colour and texture. The most typical things on each animal. I made a moodboard, I was inspired by makeup artists, and hairdressers’ earlier works found on web.”
Part of Flora’s inspiration for the project was to show the connection between nature and humans. Animals and humans have stark differences, but they have just as bewildering similarities. She remarked, “I realized how perfect the Nature is, and the similarity between humans and animals. I love animals, and somehow I wanted to show that we are very similar to them.”
