Turning to Mother Nature, Nikolai Tolstyh cuts various animal silhouettes on paper and chooses natural backdrops to complete his artwork, which he then photographs to share on Instagram.
It's a simple but effective project that makes best use of patterns and colours found in the natural world that perfectly depict each of his chosen animals. For instance, a tiger takes its composition from the stripes of some autumnal orange ferns while a red squirrel enjoys the backdrop of some bright red petals. Make sure you follow his latest updates on Instagram.
