The Andre De Freitas collection of humanimal illustrations are alluringly eerie. The young artist graduated with a degree in computer graphics, and quickly developed an obsession with stillness. Dr Freitas envisions his subjects as photographs and renders them to hold the same reality-stiken characteristics.
Under the company name Megatherium, meaning 'great beast,' Andre De Freitas' work evokes an awe-inducing power. The feeling is subtle, with subdued colors and quiet tones. These femme fatales are darkly mysterious, with exposed bone, antlers and fiercely glaring eyes.
With an animalistic attitude, Andre De Freitas brings the basic human condition to another level.
