The connection that humans feel toward animals can be attributed to the unique personalities that both species exhibit and the street art portraits crafted by Rafael Suriani bring the similarities between both people and wild creatures to life in a very literal way.
Merging fox heads onto the legs of a leather-clad woman or drawing a devil-may-care, dress-wearing kitty cat lounging against a wall while smoking a cigarette are but two examples of the artist's unique interpretation of form.
Suriani skillfully merges attributes from the human and animal kingdoms together into unique creatures that cause one to ponder how different they really are from those in the wild kingdom.
Each of his stickers are designed to interact with the surroundings where they are affixed, making the illustrations all the more life-like.
