A lot can be said about the digital art series titled Primal by Ari Weinkle, a graphic designer based in Brookline, Massachusetts, but the best way to do these creations justice is by simply looking at them. Full of incredible detail, the animalistic forms look like part organic matter and part machine. Essentially, each one embodies the spirit of an animal (mountain lion, hawk and horned sheep) in abstract form.

Primal by Ari Weinkle also depicts two human skulls. The first explores the hidden realms of consciousness while the second one addresses the idea that primal instincts are functioning mechanisms within the mind. Complementing the abstract portrayals of wild animals beautifully, the series suggests that all species, including humans, are innately animalistic. Humans simply have the capacity to balance their primal instincts with rational ones.
