Christophe Gilland has a very interesting history indeed.

From his artist bio:
Christophe is an Irish-born Czech-Canadian yet French citizen; and after having lived in Orlando (Florida) and Vancouver, (British Columbia) he moved to Prague in 2009. The son of a classical animator, Christophe enjoyed a somewhat fairy-tale childhood spent behind the scenes at Walt Disney World’s animation studios, which played a significant part in his early artistic influences.

Themes since explored range from esoteric phenomenon and fairytales to science and alchemical practices. From childlike curiosities, monstrosities and psychology, to man’s relationship with nature, the archaic and the otherworldly.

I especially love his wildly creative take on the “anatomy” of common plants and creatures.
