Sara Landeta's bird paintings will make your heart soar. The Madrid based artist is working on an ongoing series in which she paints birds on unfolded pharmaceutical boxes.

The medicine packaging are laid flat, while Landeta paints stunningly delicate winged wonders on the blank side. The birds are often illustrated in an immobile position featuring foliage flourishes such as branches, leaves, flowers and berries. She appears to have taken inspiration from a bird encyclopedia rather than nature itself.

The bird paintings can be framed to preserve the flatness of the deconstructed box. These works of art would be a great addition to your home decor if you are looking to take up a little wall space. Given the smaller size of the pharmaceutical packaging, the portraits are not large.
