The 'Bird Rib' Series by Maurizio Bongiovanni is Supernatural

What might have begun as impeccably realistic oil paintings, each individual image in the 'Bird Rib' series has fallen victim to some rather gripping distortions.

The amount of detail and color within Bongionvanni's work suggests an intimate understanding of the different bird species exhibited in his 'Bird Rib' series, and yet it is clear that for his creative purposes he has pulled at their feathered forms to enforce geometric mutations. A dramatic environmental statement or an idiosyncratic artistic discourse, these paintings are a sight for sore eyes.
