Have you ever seen a Wombanana? Or a Flernmingo? This summer, come and meet these fantastic beasts in the Kids’ Corner. Illustrator and author, Marta Barnes presents a series of surrealist watercolours inspired by her love for animals, plants and her world travels.

Created during the confinement, the artist decided to take up an art challenge during a livestream on her Instagram account. The prompt for “Planimals” involved rolling two dice – one to choose a plant and the other to choose an animal – and combining them into a surrealist form. Within a few minutes, a new wildlife was created right in front of the viewers’ eyes. After a few challenges, a whimsical watercolour series was created.

A pair of dice will be available for those who would like to live this experience and create their own fantastic beast.
