French Artist Creates Surrealistic Art That Shows What An Apocalyptic World Could Look Like (39 Pics)

Imagine if, what if, at the beginning of the 21st century, humanity ceased to exist, leaving room for nature to reign fully? What if the Earth was completely empty of people? For most of us, it may sound like an apocalyptic fantasy script for a new upcoming Hollywood movie. However, the idea behind Chris Morin’s work is not pessimistic at all as he whisks us away to a peaceful world where humanity ceased to exist a long time ago.

My 18 Photos Show The Eerie Aftermath Of The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster

It was March 11th, 2011 in the Fukushima Prefecture of Japan. The day an earthquake rocked, a tsunami engulfed, and a nuclear power plant went into meltdown.

I am an explorer of the abandoned world. I search for remnants of what we leave behind when we relegate things to decay. I have explored many locations with sad tales and dark histories. I experience a wide range of emotions when I explore forgotten places, as I attempt to document the forgotten world. I immerse myself in the story of each location, in an attempt to present photos with context. Sometimes this is a happy partnership, other times it may uncover a painful past.

My Paintings Are Full Of Hundreds Of Lives

From pareidolias to living entities …

In these artworks, just like in Nature, it’s not about competition but cooperation. You won’t create a peaceful & happy world if its foundation is this “competition” myth, where you can’t win anything because it’d mean someone else is losing.

There is another way. Like in a melody, notes don’t oppose themselves but find a path to mutually sublime each other into a harmonious symbiosis.

This is what we have to look for every single day; with every single thought, how could we harmonize our notes with others’ ones to create a melody celebrating life itself.

The Horses Of Neptune

The Horses Of Neptune

One day Neptune, God of the Sea, was traveling his domain in his chariot drawn by nine white horses, when, passing in front of the mouth of the Rhone, he met a farmer who was having trouble with a black bull: “Here is my best horse; if you know how to make him a friend, he will be an irreplaceable ally against the black bull. But remember, he comes from the immensity of the sea and he was led by a god: it will be necessary, when he wants, to let him free to come and deeply breathe his marine and divine origins. ” This is the legend about the Camargue Horses.

Childhood Days

Due to Covid, the world has come to a standstill, but not the emotions of nature. I remembered my childhood while capturing these beautiful chicks. I would just sit there the whole day watching them & capture those priceless moments as they unfold. It all started with a shy look & peek through mom’s feathers. They spend all their time around mom & sleep under the belly of mom, cuddled by the warmth of mother’s love. Tender moments while learning the art of preening, exciting fun in the water with siblings, vital lessons on food & shivering in strain. Childhood is awesome with mom around us to take care.

Emperor Penguins

Emperor Penguins

I was literally lying flat on the ground while I was shooting this image. Why I did this is because when we go lower than their height, they feel less scared being around us and for the same reason, this particular Emperor family spent a good amount of time beside me and I was lucky enough to capture some beautiful shots. On this particular trip I had walked an average of 8 hours per day in search of a perfect frame. My name is Thomas Vijayan, I am basically an architect hailing from Kerala, India, also known as God’s Own Country. I was raised in Bangalore and have now settled in Canada with my family. I have traveled all the seven continents for photography, which is my passion but not my profession. The big cats have always been my favorite subject for photography. To me there is nothing called “perfection” in any photography; every click to me is an experience, the more I click, the more I learn something new. I give more importance to quality than clicking pictures in quantity.

At that moment, I started to take pictures inspired by the beauty that the surrounding nature could offer to us; that activity was a great escape from my daily routine. When I came to Key West, my photography journey became more fascinating, as I was surrounded by the ocean, and water became mostly present in my photography as the subject, often combined with elements of human activity.

Desert Portraits

Desert Portraits

I’ve been photographing the deserts of the UAE for over 5 years and in this time many of the locations I’ve visited have radically changed. Many of the trees and shrubs that once stood have their roots exposed to the sun or are buried by the ever-changing windswept desert landscape. Unbearable summer heat mixed with almost freezing evening temperatures in the winter months, the consistent sandblasting strips the bark off the majority of young trees. These ‘desert portraits’ offer a glimpse in time of plant species fighting for survival in one of the world’s harshest environments. Anthony incorporates a minimalistic approach within his photography and this simplicity shifts our perspective so the imagery is less about actual place and more about emotional state. In his photographs he uses negative space and an ethereal aesthetic to provide the viewer with a sense of serenity and calm, sharing the emotions of the moments he captures. His post-production style offers pastel expressionism to further sooth the soul, offering the viewer the opportunity of escape into the purest essence of solitude.

Interior inspired by Jungle

Nature is a big inspiration for interior designers. Its patterns, prints and colors bring something beautiful into each home, they provide warmth and reunite people with nature. That is why designers love playing with natural colors and patterns and such trend that marked 2016 is still on top of the design lists. Jungle prints, with various animal patterns and colors is something that you should always opt for in your home if you like earthy undertones and calming atmosphere. So why not try this trend this year as well?

Introduce Plants

Just a few plants can greatly change the atmosphere in your home. If you add a few exotic plants, you will get the wild atmosphere with a few mesmerizing leafy accents in each room. Dining room is perfect place for introducing nature and you can start off with placing a bigger branch in some weird shape on the shelf. Also, tropical plants with big leafs will look great by the dining room window or in the corner of your living room. The best tropical plants for such decoration are TI plants, Alocasia, Colocasia, Philodendrons and other big leaf plants. 

Clash of Exotic Colors

This trend brings a lot of bold, vibrant colors and various patterns with plenty of mixing of the different materials and fabrics. The colors that dominate are orange, purple and greens mixed with materials such as bamboo and wood in order to bring nature inside. Opt for heavy and dark furniture that make a great foundation for all the vibrant colors that you can incorporate through throw pillows, carpets and different seating. Also, decorating your walls with fabrics, setting up interesting paneled silk screens and various bold lanterns will bring the spirits of the wilderness into your home and make it more dynamic and homey. 

Bring Rattan Back

Rattan has found its way back into our home décor, both on the inside and outside. This strong retro material is perfect for living room seating and it makes a nice decorative piece. Also, this material is eco-friendly and it can have many shapes and uses. Thus, you can try incorporating it into your interior design through furniture, lighting fixtures or turn it into a 3D art in some modern shapes or some more rustic, traditional styles. Nevertheless, a few chairs and a bench made of rattan and covered with some animal print throw pillow with provide the airiness and comfort your home needs. 

Go Monochromatic

Some people just don’t like their homes to be packed with dynamics of vibrant colors. That is perfectly okay, but there is way to pay respect to this trend and still make your home minimalistic. Opt for a monochrome look that isn’t too boring. Choose color palettes in the shades of beige, cream, black and brown. Play with lighter and darker shades of these colors and preserve the elegance. Add a few pops with fabrics in animal print, but stay subtle. Also, if you have a favorite zebra print, use those colors on your walls, windows or flooring. The design will still be monochromatic, but it will have a fun little twist to break the monotony. 

Animal Print Artwork

Artwork will make your home look more sophisticated, and if you do it with animal print, you will have mesmerizing elegance in the room. Introducing such artwork is perfect for people who fear that their home will look like an exaggerated African safari. What you have to do is keep the colors of your furniture and accessories in some neutral earthy colors, while your artwork can consist of various jungle patterns. Lay a few pictures above the sofa with fun animal prints, such as zebra, giraffe, tiger and leopard, and only add a few more hints of jungle through your plants or throw pillows. If you keep the rest of the colors in some neutral shades, this astonishing artwork will get all the attention while tying the whole design into a sophisticated look.

If classic modern looks are way to minimalistic for your personal preferences, you can always rely on nature. Introducing nature into our homes is a big trend of 2016 and jungles are a perfect inspiration for any professional or amateur designer. Don’t be afraid to mix, match and experiment with various prints and fabrics, and your home will have the dynamics of a forest, while preserving its comfortable atmosphere.
