Canadian artist Laura Bifano blends the organic and the pixelated in her series "Menagerie," an exploration of 8-bit beasts with all the geometric detail of Minecraft and Cubivore fauna.

Bifano says of the series of polygonal animal paintings that it was "inspired by my love of nature and classic video games." Prints of the "Menagerie" series are available at her Etsy shop if you're looking for some offbeat nature paintings for your study, office or basement hovel.

More of Bifano's work and the rest of her polygonal animal paintings at her official web site.
