Painted Mechanized Fauna

Among other projects, Swiss artist, graphic designer, and illustrator Remo Lienhard (aka Wes21) produces large-scale public art and designs that combine natural elements with science fiction.

His style resembles 1980s sci-fi illustrations, but the joining of mechanical parts and buildings with humongous bugs and sea animals, for example, is new. (New to me, at least.)

The piece below gives quite a literal meaning to the old Finnish joke about our national air force consisting of mosquitoes:

I got a good chuckle out of that one. šŸ™‚

I recommend having a look at Lienhard’s website. Apart from the works with sci-fi elements, there is so much to admire.
