Animals in Moire by Andrea Minini

A monochrome illustration of a pelican by Andrea Minini.

Milan-based illustrator Andrea Minini creates graphic images with incredible, surprising detail. This series of monochrome animal illustrations started off with just a few lines, but ended with a striking series that has depth and complexity. Blending art with mathematics, Minini created moiré patterns on Adobe Illustrator, using lines of different density to create such a visual effect.

The result is illustrations that are minimal yet elegant, with nothing but the collection of lines and clever use of space to bring these animals to life.
