The artwork created Gabriel Moreno is beautifully executed and even more than that it speaks to a higher purpose. I’m not a big fan of this style and it looks fairly dated to me. Reminds me of the great Ted Coconis and his early illustration work in the 60’s and 70’s… The highlight here is the intermeshing of human and nature, how we are linked together on the earth. A reminder, if you will that this world is not ours alone to do what we please. Co-existence and respect for each other is the key take away. For that alone this iconic and innovative artist should be noted.

Humanity and nature become one in these beautiful metamorphic illustrations
It’s easy to regard humankind as a species that exists apart from the rest of the natural world. Dwell on that idea too much, however, and it can grow into an unsettling feeling of detachment.
The next time you’re feeling isolated from nature, let these breathtaking illustrations, which seamlessly weave the bodies of humans with those of plants and other animals, serve as a compelling reminder that even when humanity and nature seem separated from one another, the two are, in fact, inextricably linked.
The pieces you see here are the work of Madrid-based artist Gabriel Moreno, who created them using an arresting combination of pen, ink and watercolor. What’s really mindblowing is how much detail Moreno manages to include in every illustration.
