Tire art | Rubber animal and hybrid

“My concept is mutation—mutants,” the artist, Oh JiYoung, explains.  “The product is from nature,” from the white sap of latex trees, “But here it’s changed. The color is black. The look is scary. Rubber is very flexible, like skin, like muscles.”
He chooses animals that are often seen as “monsters,” then obsesses over every detail—each muscle, sinew and marble eye—to try to “restore them to their natural beauty.”
