Safari Animal Tetris

With the intention to study about various safari animals, Jessie Katsukin Takamura created 'Safari Animal Tetris', a digital portrait with lines and earthy tones. The art-making process took a turn to make it into a game; how one can fit the animals in an enclosed space, just like Tetris. As fun as it sounds and seems like, this felt-textured illustration addresses animal poaching and extinction. Being forced into the enclosed space of the canvas, the animals are stripped from their freedom in the wilderness. The white background signifies the disappearance of species as they vanish into thin air, into extinction.
