Spanish illustrator Fernando Vincente gave a whole new meaning to the phrase, ‘seeing the world with a different eye’ by painting various images over existing cartographs and maps. He is creating animals, humans and objects out of the shape of different countries on the map. ‘When I paint I like to do on printed materials, is a way to unite my passion for topics such as anatomy, mechanics and my hobby for collecting posters, maps, atlas geographic and geographical anatomy with my work’, he states. Vincente collected his unusual canvases on flea markets in Madrid (called ‘Rastro’), in shops and antique fairs. With his series he aims to create something new and unexpected out of the common shapes.
