While most people’s experiences with animals involve encountering the domesticated or captive sort, DALeast depicts an animal world far from the civilized, cute and cuddly version we humans like to imagine in his current solo show, “The Laten Photon,” at New York City’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery. With his abstracted, high-contrast paintings, the Chinese-born, South African-based artist presents a high-intensity drama of predators and prey. Known for his monochromatic street art, in which gleaming, ribbon-like black lines coalesce into expressionistic animal silhouettes, DAL departed from his typical color palette and worked with rich hues of eggplant, indigo and burgundy in addition to his signature tea-stained linen. The title of the exhibition comes from quantum physics, where the photon is defined as a particle that creates light and makes matter visible to the human eye. The title speaks to DAL’s continual interest in transformation and evolution. See more on Hi-Fructose.

Today the Department of Awesome Animal Hybrids explores the work of Italian artist Alessandro Gallo. He hand-sculpts wonderfully strange and unsettlingly realistic characters who are part human, part animal, usually dressed in everyday clothes and sometimes engaged is perfectly ordinary activities such as reading on a bench, playing the guitar or having a swing in a park.

"Expertly reproducing human and animal anatomy, Gallo blends the two to create convincing hybrids of man and beast. The works produce an almost eerie sense of unheimliche, as Freud put it: when the familiar becomes uncomfortably strange.”

Gallo just opened a solo exhibition of his newest series of hybrid figures on display at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York. The show is entitled Strani Incontri, which is Italian for “Strange Encounters” and runs through October 4, 2014.

Visit Alessandro Gallo’s website to check out more of his fascinating sculptures.
