The BAKEA ‘Heads Hunted’ series portrays a modernization of trophy hunting. BAKEA is the alter-ego of Spanish artistic director and graphic artist Juan Carlos Paz Gomez, and is responsible for creating these colorful creatures. The project is Juan Carlos Gomez Paz's submission to one of the world’s leading contemporary character and design festivals: the Pictoplasma in Berlin.

The series has heads of quirky small monsters hung up on wooden frames. However, unlike real animals, the monsters don’t appear dead due to their expressions, which make them appear quite lively.

Juan Carlos Gomez Paz describes what drove him to create these monsters on his Behance portfolio, describing his brain to be a place filled with fantastical planets of flora and fauna.
