The Pleistocene Wildife Art of Sergio de la Rosa

The Rewilding Institute header graphic was created by an extremely talented artist, Sergio de la Rosa.  I wanted to show off some of his work today.  The hard part is that the landscape graphics he creates are so finely detailed they end up being very large.

I found myself going through the landscapes he creates, having to scroll back and forth and up and down to take it all in, and lost myself in a world that just seemed to get bigger and deeper.  I discvered small animals in the grasses that no one would be able to pick up from a scaled-down version of the graphic.

I’ve never really had an experience like that with photos or computer images before.  The level of detail is truly astonishing.

I will try to share those images with you once I figure out how to do it.  They are many megabytes each.

Sergio’s Sculpture

Here is something I can share with you today.  Sergio is also a brilliant sculptor of wildlife.  He captures fine details in his work.  As you will see, Sergio is really into Pleistocene megafauna!

    Those are fantastic pieces by Sergio de la Rosa. I would love to see the larger, more detailed photo-mosaics you describe at the beginning.
