The Giraffe Who Wanted To Be A Swan
ÔThe Giraffe Who Wanted To Be a SwanÕ is an impressive piece from an ongoing series of digital collage artworks by Carl Moore titled Animals Pretending To Be Other Animals.
Carl Moore says of the series ÒMy main concern is with the merging of the ridiculous and the representational, the end result being to create a series of prints and paintings which communicate a degree of pathos and also appear unsettlingly odd, playful, quite tragic and endearing.Ó
This Giraffe on a sumptuous background of deep mustard yellow is surrounded by the paraphernalia of his dressing up experiment. Surrounded by paint cans and covered in dripping white, with two ferns for a tail and a black beak, this beautiful species bending creature is not afraid to be who he wants to be.

About The Artist - Carl Moore

We’ve been working with Carl since 2014

Carl is a London-based artist who paints, draws and makes short films. Using playful intent, their most renowned work is a series of digitally produced prints that look at the notion of ‘Animals Pretending to be Other Animals’. We love the vibrancy of compositions that never fail to inject humour and instill a sense of the absurd. 


Carl has a tendency to investigate unusual, unconventional and amusing subjects and another body that exemplifies this is ‘Dripsters’ which toys with the semantics of ice-cream. In taking the outlines of animals, filling them with vibrantly coloured paint and dripping that paint down the canvas, he defies the ordinary. The result creates striking duo toned prints, the drips of which are so simple in appearance that they somewhat resemble a computer-generated barcode. 

Carl uses a range of different sources, inspirations and a multitude of methods to generate a diverse body of work. Carl’s work has featured in several publications including ‘Art of England’ and ‘Artists and Illustrators’. Carl’s work has been sold worldwide and features in the art collection of a number of celebrities.
