Colorfully Altered X-Rays of Fantastical Digital Animals

Korean artist Wonman Kim, aka Curt Man, is a graphic designer and illustrator who recently held his first solo exhibition, titled Trinity, for his intriguing digital works. The colorful mix of puzzling images depict what appear to be x-ray scans of different animals. Although, these are no ordinary x-rays. These are the kind of radiographs that make you question what you’re really looking at. Is that just a funny looking bird or a skeleton robot with a rifle for a beak?

The collection of curious images display the artist’s wild imagination that goes far beyond cohesive comprehension. Once you think you’ve discovered a likeness in the components of each creature, the next digital photo leaves you baffled, yet again. Kim incorporates both mechanical and organic elements that lead one to ultimately conclude that there is no coherent system to recognizing a pattern in their construction. They are abstractly assembled, drawing viewers in with their colorful quirkiness.
