Lifelike, educational and interactive animal portraits


lvb art / Lisanne van Brakel is specialized in drawing and painting animals.

As well as in her autonomous work, she strives to depict a true-to-life impression of the essence of an animal.

She creates animal portraits for individuals and companies, like (nature and history)museums,

zoological gardens, petting zoos and book publishers.

The work of lvb art / Lisanne van Brakel is characterized by its various palette of

techniques and applications. This is why lvb art / Lisanne van Brakel is able to catch the expression

of an animal in many ways.

There are possibilities to connect animal portraits with existing objects, such as a wall painting that

merges with the washbasins at a handwashing area. In this way, the existing objects acquire a new

meaning and people use their imagination to bring different contexts together. In addition, it is possible

for people to let themselves be a part of the artwork, like a cut-out photo board with a hole where

faces can be sticked through. These kind of artworks have a more humorous effect.

Animal portraits can also be educational. Imagine a painting of a horse head with a 3-dimensional

mouth. In the mouth people can put their fingers when they stand behind the painting, just like a

puppet show. Can you imagine how human fingers and horse lips look alike, because they are

used for the same action, namely to grab and touch things?

lvb art / Lisanne van Brakel is willing to make these kind of more experimental artworks

a reality.

lvb art / Lisanne van Brakel does also not hesitate to dive into experiments that are required for

specific requests, as long as the subject is animal related and real animals will not be used or harmed.

For example: if a customer wishes to have an interactive artwork that can be used by

his or her pet, we will together find out how this artwork can maintain the safety and health

of the animal and how it will invite the animal to stimulate its natural senses and behaviour.

lvb art / Lisanne van Brakel is currently working on a new type of interactive work that is

based on the 'Phenakistoscopes' (or wonder discs) of the 19th century inventor Joseph

Plateau. Via these wonder discs drawings can come alive when people make

them move with two turntables.

For the wonder discs, lvb art / Lisanne van Brakel offers different hand drawn animal movements,

behaviours and transformation processes. Her interactive work, like the wonder disc,

is mainly analogue, which means that no energy sources are involved and can only be operated

by human or (in some cases) animal actions.
