Collaged Humanimal Hybrids

Joram Roukes Oil Paints Magazine-Like Imagery Onto Canvas

— August 30, 2011 — Art & Design
There's been quite a lot of human-animal hybrid imagery to have surfaced on the Internet these past few years, but Joram Roukes takes that concept and brings it to the painting world rather than simply manipulating photographs. What's even more impressive about Joram Roukes' work is the fact that his oil paintings resemble magazine collages more so than traditional illustration work. They truly give off a pop-art feel that's more regularly seen in graffiti as opposed to oil paintings.

My favorite Joram Roukes painting of the bunch is the one in which he transplants the lovable and electric Pikachu's head onto the body of a beast with three arms.

Implications - As digital artistry is rapidly advancing and taking graphic designers to uncharted territory, so too must analog artists push the boundaries of their art form. As a result, there's been a recent insurgence of innovative and engaging analog artwork. Corporations may consider using this analog artwork in promotional campaigns in order to garner consumer attention.

3. Pop-art Oil Paintings - Joram Roukes' pop-art style oil paintings, resembling magazine collages, can disrupt the art industry by appealing to a new generation of art enthusiasts and collectors.

2. Fashion - The trend of human-animal hybrids in artwork opens up disruptive innovation opportunities in the fashion industry, with brands exploring unique and unconventional designs inspired by these hybrids.
3. Advertising - Corporations can leverage the innovative analog artwork trend to create disruptive advertising campaigns that capture consumer attention and stand out from the competition.
