Surreal Hybrid Animal Sculptures by Ellen Jewett

Ontario-based Canadian sculptor Ellen Jewett, aka creaturesfromel, creates fantasy-driven biological forms that take the mind on a surreal journey. Each of her creatures exhibits an unconventional yet imaginative aesthetic that combines one’s dreams and nightmares into an unusual figure.

There is both a mechanical and organic element to each sculptural representation that encourages one to imagine the magical land they come from. Like beasts in mid-transformation, there is a sense of motion to the sculptures that often feature multiple species in a single body. In fact, the hybrid creatures look like something straight out of a Miyazaki film.

Select sculptures from Jewett’s vast collection are currently available to purchase through her Etsy shop.
