As a huge taxidermy fan, I love stumbling across those who use the art in unconventional ways, using the animals to create something that little bit different instead of just another trophy for the mantelpiece.

Enrique Gomez De Molina certainly does that! Using various animals he creates Frankentein-esque creatures that do not belong in this world, but to another world entirely.

The beauty of each piece is that the parts blend into the next seamlessly, leaving the viewer confused about where one animal ends and the next begins. Molina is a true artist, and his work is jaw-droppingly impressive...

Many of the hybrids are terrifying, yet have an ethereal beauty about them...I found myself wondering what their story would be? Where did they come from? Where they benevolent or malevolent?

I found this quote from Molina himself, and It sums up his work perfectly:
''The impossibility of my creatures brings me both joy and sadness at the same time. The joy comes from seeing and experiencing the Fantasy of the work but that is coupled with the sadness of the fact that we are destroying all of these beautiful things.''
