The paintbrush is one tool that separates humans from other species because of its purely cosmetic purpose; the Paint Evolution photo series demonstrates just how creative these tools are themselves. Yes, paintbrushes are known to yield great works of art, but in this case they have been made into artworks themselves.

Conceived and created by Spanish studio CuldeSac for famous paint company Valentine, The Paint Evolution photo series is comprised of 15 different variations of paintbrushes. From forked brushes to balloon brushes, the sky is the limit.

The Paint Evolution photo series shows how "genetic mutations give birth to imaginative instruments: the brush compass, pendulum or whip give a clue to the behavior of paint through sketches and through history," as explained by the designers. This series demonstrates that brushes aren't mere tools.
