Turkish artist Said Dagdeviren makes beautiful art with a message. His recent series, Double Exposure, is of animated animal silhouettes and human activity that damages said animal’s habitat.
“I made these gifs because this is how I feel about our planet,” Dagdeviren told Bored Panda. “Humans are so selfish and they didn’t want to see… animals can’t talk, they can’t tell us how much they hurt. We destroy everything and it’s break my heart so deeply. Maybe my work will touch someone’s hearts and make them realize that we’re not alone in this world. We are connected.”
This is how humans destroy animal habitats…
I was inspired by the simplicity of the twitter logo, which was actually created out of 13 circles. I decided to challenge myself and see what other animals I could create as well.
I thought to myself, “Only 13 circles? I doubt most of the animals will even be recognizable…” but surprisingly, I was pretty happy with what turned out. Sometimes I was even happy before I hit 13 circles, and I would “cheat” a little by adding the remaining circles on a sharp corner to simply round it out a little, instead of being forced to change the shape of the animal. But hey.
I’ve sold a few prints. Contact me if you’re interested as well!
