Talented illustrator Emeric Trahand, known by his artist name Takeshi, is a French creative that puts together colorful photomontages of animals and people using a variety of other illustrations. The images are sliced and arranged accordingly to create something new entirely from a mosaic of other illustrations.

Trahand's style is quite unique offering a new perspective to illustrations and images by repurposing them to create a new work of art. His pieces feature geometric shapes cut from illustrations of textiles, fabrics, patterns, people, furniture and more that are reformatted like a puzzle to create something new. One illustration showcases a lion made from contrasting bright and light colors to capture a surrealist depiction of the king of the jungle. Trahand's work has also been featured in collaborative projects with brands such as Nike and Swatch.
