Matthew Grabelsky is an artist from L.A. who was inspired by the New York City subway to create this series of surreal paintings. The subjects of his paintings are humans from the neck down, while their heads are replaced with animal heads.
Grabelsky lives in L.A., but he grew up in NYC. Additionally, he’s always been fascinated by Greek mythology, which contains many stories about human nature being represented by animals. “The characters are symbolic of the kinds of thoughts that lie under the surface of people’s minds, and they reveal that the most extraordinary can exist in the most ordinary of everyday settings,” the artist told Prohbtd.
Grabelsky graduated from Rice University with high honors. He earned a BA in Art and Art History. His work is often shown in exhibitions around the globe.
