Entitled 'Figments', this witty portrait series by Boris Pelcer personifies its animal subjects. The artist's striking paintings challenge reality and transform his cat, bat and owl subjects into unlikely but debonair gentleman who sport monocle and top hat accessories and pose with wine glass and book props.

After creating 'Certain Something', a piece commissioned for Ryne Eklund, Boris Pelcer was inspired to create a series of three portraits that embraced the same aesthetic as his winning first piece. Following up his famed cat portrait, the artist's 'Absolute Knowledge' and 'Perfect Ego' works make up this eccentric and witty set of acrylic portraits.

Redefining reality, this set of personified animal portraits is sure to appeal to the hipster art lover with an appreciation for nature and wildlife.
