To bring awareness to several endangered species, talented artist Jen Bartel created this series of whimsical technicolor animal portraits that showcase how important these animals are to the earth by enveloping them in flora and fauna. The images are incredibly striking with bold colors and hyperrealistic details.

Paying attention to species that are quickly becoming endangered is an important point to pay attention to since so many species are crucially interlinked. Bartel brings attention to animals such as rhinos, jaguars, pandas and lynxes by elegantly illustrating the creatures in unrealistic psychedelic colors. The images are very realistic showing the details of the fur and skin of the animals blending into flowers such as tulips, lillies and roses. While the images are beautiful to look at, they have a serious tone to them as they remind the viewer the animals present could be on their way to becoming extinct.
