Entitled "Exploding Heads", this series of charming illustrations by Andrea Wan plays with a viewer's perception. "The illustrator and visual artist was born in Hong Kong, raised in Vancouver and based in Berlin," places that have all inspired her conceptual works of art.

Andrea Wan's latest image set boasts visually striking views of human subjects whose faces have been broken up into a series of fragments. These fragmented faces are infused with jungle creature imagery that adds dimension and detail to the portraits. Creatures include mammoths, birds and striped tigers that are repeated throughout each portrait.

The most fascinating aspect of this illustration series is its seamless blend of human and animal-themed elements. The portraits are set to appeal to art lovers with an appreciation for visually complex graphics.
