Ok so I'm late, so sue me, but none of you bothered to guess and get points toward hipsterprize 2014, so whatevs @ you too. Either way, aren't you glad you tuned in? Matt Forderer showed his amazing zooscapes (my own words) at a group show back in February, and this piece is now my desktop background. It's that great.
Matt's ability to great mythical, spliced together, science project-like creatures which are photorealistic but then live in a surrealist backdrop is just such a great nose-thumbing to adherence to genres is just brilliant (and has caused this run-on sentence because now I'm gushing).
He's also got wacky collages which you can check out on his portfolio and keep up with news on www.matforderer.com, and I've provided a slideshow below that should speak for itself. Love him or lose cool points!
