Artist B-O-K-E appears to have made it his mission to recreate animals out of water splashes. Strikingly beautiful, each artwork looks at once familiar and mythical. It is as though each horse, butterfly and elephant represented has traversed from another existence in which delicacy and beauty are revered.

Hailing from Germany, artist B-O-K-E masterfully uses photography and digital manipulations to bring his watery visions to life. Considering that many mammals and animals are predominantly made up of water, it is only natural that a person would one day envision them as made solely out of water. Artist B-O-K-E is careful to also represent them in their natural environments, making them seem at once surreal and realistic.
