like many children, dutch artist telmo pieper drew imaginative, colorful, creative and not-always-so-anatomically correct creatures and characters when he was 4-years-old. for ‘kiddie arts’, pieper has reincarnated the drawn works from his childhood as digital paintings, materializing them as realistic figures in intricate detail, vibrant hues and with computerized graphics. the result illustrates the quirky line scribbles as lifelike underwater animals, insects and architecture, each a bit awry in their structural and biological precision. the charming and humorous sense of innocence and fantasy is maintained, making for a series of strangely proportioned aquatic life, big headed bugs and absurdly-shaped cars. take a look below at ‘haai’, the shark that looks more like an anchovy, the butterfly ‘vlinder’, whose face is a giant black blob and ‘slak’ the snail whose tiny shell barely fits on his body.
