Laura Bifano’s Strange Paintings of Pixelated Animals

Here’s something that we just spotted on MetaFilter that we think all of you Minecraft fans can get behind: Menagerie is a series of “10 polygonal animal paintings” inspired by Canadian artist Laura Bifano’s love of nature and classic video games; each work juxtaposes the soft lines of a lush, natural landscape with animals that are decidedly block-like. Click through to check out a slide show of her paintings, and if you’re interesting in purchasing a print version, visit her shop on Etsy.
