A Brief Introduction to Animal Prints

Animal prints are sought after artworks collected by animal and art lovers from around the world. Artists not only depict animals because they are beautiful and essential to the natural world, but because they help us reflect on ourselves and the world we’ve created.

The very first animal depictions were found in prehistoric caves. The oldest animal painting was discovered in a cave in Borneo and is thought to be at least 40,000 years old. Anthropologists believe that paintings of animals on cave walls were one of the first forms of entertainment for humans. This is based on the fact they also built fires in the caves. The light from the fires introduced movement into the images and reduced oxygen in the small space, which is said to have induced mild hallucinations when viewing the paintings.

Artists have long been fascinated by birds and fish for their fleeting beauty, as well as pets, woodland and predatory animals for their friendship, threat or mystery. The scientific drive behind depicting animals has had a major influence on how and why artists make animal art – to understand them. Today, environmental concerns are also a motivator for the great many artists working to keep the importance of animal life in our purview.

Famous Animal Prints

Well known for his whimsical animal prints is Belgian artist Thierry Poncelet who created a series of anthropomorphised dog portraits in which he places dogs’ heads on the bodies of aristocrats. Massively reproduced, the prints can be found on t-shirts, mugs and posters and Poncelet is inspired by French painters, literature and Walt Disney.
