John Putaseri’s playful owl series Rabbit Destruction Council will raise a smile

If you’re a fan of Alan Partridge, you’ll know that owl sanctuaries make for cracking dates but don’t be fooled by this romantic fantasy – owls are ruthless killers. New Zealand artist John Putaseri plays on this idea with his series Rabbit Destruction Council, a series of painstakingly-rendered, brightly coloured owls each with a cheeky sense of personality. This may not be the most boundary-pushing project we’ve ever featured but they’re likely to at least raise a smile on Thursday morning.
