Whimsical Illustrations Merge with Everyday Objects

Instagram continues to pave the way for innovative artists like graphic designer Javier Prez, who regularly adds to his playful series entitled Instagram Experiments. Using a variety of everyday objects combined with simple line drawings, the Ecuador-based artist constructs whimsical scenes in all shapes and sizes.

From a still life of lungs to adventures in spaghetti rain, Prez finds ways to bring life to all kinds of static objects. His imagination leads to many inventive creatures and characters and, through just a few quick pen strokes, he transforms small, unexpected food, flowers, gadgets, and tools into lively and expressive artworks. His cheerful collection, which will certainly make you smile, is the artist’s way of reminding us that “we [all] have an inner child who wants to have fun and play.”
