Toronto-based artist Ashley Mackenzie creates these imaginative body drawings, which focus on turning the human form into surreal works of art. Each of these peculiar illustrations forces viewers to look at the human body in new and unusual ways.

One of these surreal artworks depicts a boy with a face that looks more like an unfinished puzzle. In fact, some of the pieces are missing. Another drawing depicts two naked individuals crouching down together inside of a pill capsule, holding hands. In one piece, Mackenzie depicts a figure who seems to be unraveling to reveal stars beneath their skin. Mackenzie intertwines bodies, colors and unusual shapes in this intriguing series.

These striking body drawings are extremely thought-provoking. They look like images one might see in a warped dream. Ashley Mackenzie's surreal figure illustrations make people seem as complex as the universe.
