Photographic penguin pictures are an example of natural bird art. These works display penguins in a variety of ways, from caring families to daredevils. These works display an animal that the majority of people aren't able to actually see in their everyday lives and is highly popular among natural art enthusiasts around the world.
While few and far between, there are penguin paintings that straddle the divide between photography and whimsical penguin pictures. Works such as 'Surreal Penguin Landscape' explore these creatures by taking them out of their regular icy environments. Likewise, artist Natalie Talocci depicts these flightless fowl in surreal, impressionistic environments that are similar to Van Gogh's in execution.
