"The Coconut Octopus (Amphioctopus marginatus)" by Jay Rasgorshek
– Dwellings and the Concept of Home –
TINY HOMES features eighty international illustrators and designers who, through their prints, have explored and challenged our ideas of space: Interiors, exteriors, futuristic, historical, natural or personal. Some of the artwork includes serene hideaways from which to experience the world unchanged by man, methods in which to twist our concepts of what a home can be, close-up views of dwellings where things that exist unseen by the human eye reside, and a means to reflect on what comfort means to each of us. Each and every piece is a comforting and personal vignette that serves as a reminder that there's a "home" out there for all of us.
You can view the entire collection of artwork on the exhibition gallery here.

About this piece:
The Amphioctopus marginatus (coconut octopus or Veined octopus) is an average sized Cephalopod which lives in murky bays off of Indonesia. In 2005 it was spotted bipedal walking and carrying around an empty coconut shell to use as a shelter to hide from predators and prey. I wanted to paint a colorful image depicting this unique animal behavior.
