What’s the Deal with Low-poly Art?
If you’re not familiar with the term, you’ve certainly seen the style. Simple geometric shapes placed side-by-side to create angular, often minimalist, compositions. The “poly” from low poly comes from the word “polygon,” which is merely a 2-dimensional shape made of straight lines and angles from the early days of 3D animation.
Femi uses the low-poly art series to educate us interesting things we might not have known about popular animals in our universe.
Femi says: “I love low-poly particularly because it teaches me how a simple element combines with others to form something beautiful.
Just do your part. It will make a difference in the grand scheme.”
A is for Antelope
Did you know that antelopes communicate with sounds and scent signals that could linger for many days?
B is for Baboon
Like us, baboons are highly intelligent, extremely social animals. Baboons are capable of both friendship and strategic interactions. They maintain long-term relationships with other individuals, both kin and non-kin

C is for Chameleon
Contrary to popular belief, a chameleon doesn’t change its skin colour to camouflage.
They do that to regulate body temperatures and communicate to rivals or potential mates.
Bloody horny animals.
D is for Dog
Did you know that your dog could help you get a date? One study showed that a man’s chances of getting a girl’s phone number went from 10% to 33%, just by having a dog with them.
The low-poly continues from letters E – Z below.
