Artist: Zoë Trautz ( Instagram )

Austin, Texas based artist Zoë Trautz works at a non-profit organization where she feeds parrots and continues to make surreal and biology-based illustrations on the side. She channels her visions and artwork from her background education in biology and psychology and her experience with mental illness. Her influences stem from John Wesley, Jim Woodring and Salvador Dali. Her work earlier this year and much of her recent work portrays body horror and transformation, often in a subtle yet gripping way.
