Manila based illustrator Kerby Rosanes has created a project where he combines his love for drawing under the form of Geometric beasts.
Just by having a look at his work you can figure out that Kerby has his own style when it comes to drawing.
But what got my attention was the project entitled Geometric beasts. By drawing preselected animals, Kerby creates some beautiful drawings, but by adding a geometric perspective to them, things become more interesting.
In one of his used platforms to showcase the project, Kerby talks about his motivations behind Geometric beasts:
“Each piece is my take on breaking away from societal norms and just be who we truly are as unique individuals. I grew up in a community where your value as a person is based on various metrics and calculations just for you to qualify in a society that other people dictates you to be in. This “measured” life deprives us to take risks, to follow our passions and to do what we truly love.
I use geometry to symbolize the norms and simply because it’s the only math subject I enjoyed at school. I always loved drawing animals and in this case, they represent the concept of unleashing the “beast” within us – risk taker, wild and adventurous.”
The project has some of a deep meaning, hard to put together at some point, yet the result isn’t less interesting.
The project has its own personality and that for me is the most important thing.
Keep and eye on the project as Kerby keeps updating the project with new drawings. It’s interesting to see how he attaches his point of view to different animals.
