Japanese Artist Turns Dogs And Cats Into Mesmerizing Botanical Gardens

Animals and flowers have long been an endless source of inspiration for many artists around this world, so it’s not surprising that these two aspects are even more stunning when they are combined together. Hiroki Takeda is one of the talented artists who create watercolor illustrations of animals by transforming them into lovely botanical gardens, and his pictures all look mesmerizing.

The talented Japanese artist mostly draws dogs and cats, but his magical paintings sometimes feature other animals like hamsters, birds, lizards, turtles… as well. Using striking shades like red, yellow and orange, Takeda makes his artworks so impressively striking they’re hard to forget.
