Anthony Goicolea's Ghostly Hybrids

Illustration // Wednesday, September 04, 2013
Anthony Goicolea's work endeavors to debunk the principles that tie human and animal, body and plant, outline and fill. Using ghostly tracings to delineate form, Goicolea creates images of hybrid organisms that function as visual dilemmas as well as illustrations. These dark, glorious impressions are lovely as they are ghostly. Goicolea studied at the University of Georgia and the Pratt Institute of Art and currently lives and works in New York.
