Visiting Cape Town recently, artist Olaf Blecker was impressed and inspired by the variety of birds he encountered. From grumpy vultures to predatory peckers to puffed pigeons, he found soul and character in each one. Olaf took his inspiration back to Berlin with him and created these images as a result. Instead of using Photoshop, he worked with artist Steffen Seeger on actual printed images. The unique, painterly result is a fitting tribute to the majesty of Olaf’s subjects.
