New Jersey-based artist Angela Gram creates painting portraits of animals in the process of disintegrating into pieces. The paintings seem to represent a narrative of inhumane treatment of animals or their possible extinction due to environmental degradation. The featured portraits below are incredibly detailed, capturing the beauty and grandeur of the animals in artistically surreal composition. Though shattered and disfigured, the portraits still depict the fierceness nature of the beasts. Please scroll down and enjoy!
