I hate snakes. I really do, but looking at these pictures I could change my mind… maybe. Every picture is stunning. The artist is using one of the most feared creatures on Earth to create beautiful art. Out of 2,700 species of snakes, just few are dangerous to man and Guido Mocafico used them in his art to show there is a less frightening side to snakes. Take a look at his amazing coiled-snakes artworks.

Python, Andean Milk Snake, Arizona Kingsnake and Co! Guido Mocafico was born in Switzerland in 1962. He is a specialist in still life; he works for international magazines such as Numéro, French, American and Men’s Vogue, Big, The Face, Self-Service, and Wallpaper. He has also undertaken numerous advertising campaigns for Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Clinique, Shiseido, and Hermès. Over the past years, Mocafico has been at work on a personal project related to architecture, and he continues to explore aesthetic and scientific themes in nature.
