Marcelo Gallegos: Surreal Creatures

Marcelo Gallegos is an artist from New Mexico who attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is currently living in Manhattan's Lower East Side. He drew a series of fascinating, surreal animals and robotic birds that seem from a whole different universe.

Artist's statement: "I'm very interested in the intersection between the natural world and the man made. Very interested in how the world adapts to us, and how we adapt to the world. A sort of fear I have of technology, I guess. I love it and I embrace it but at the same time it’s a little scary sometimes."
