‘misfits’ by thomas grünfeld

german artist thomas grünfeld has created a wide variety of artworks in different medium over his career. on of his stand out series is ‘misfits’ a collection of hybrid taxidermy animals. you could describe these pieces as animals collages as they meld two different animals together, one being the body and one the head. the creations are real but they appear to be the sort of creatures dreamed up by children.
