Thanks to a taxidermist father who worked for the Miami Museum Of Science, and encouraged his kids to be creative with random animal parts, Enrique creates disturbing/ compelling/ way cool real-animal mashups that evoke either an Avatar-like alternative world, or one where evolution's gone haywire due to human follies -- and lord knows, that musical will drive anyone crazy. Some of his larger recent work includes "Acrobat" (a swooping river otter/bird with a snake-killing stork bill, fighting cock wings, and a pheasant tail), "Mystic" (a sage-looking creature with a beaver body, huge swan feet, a hornbill head, and a Yoda-style walking stick), and "Pandora", an aggressive double-headed swan with a coyote body, deer hooves, a warthog tail, and devil-ish horns from an antelope called a dik-dik, which explains the whole two-heads thing. There're also some smaller works, like "Serpent" (a coiled cobra body with a furious parakeet for a head), "Early Bird" (a Jurassic-looking badboy with a hornbill beak, spiky iguana head, and a water hen body, which's killing a little bird in a stream bed), and a baby emu/ spotted skunk hybrid that seems cute until you realize it's got evil eyes and it's doing a hand stand so it can spray you, called "Look At Me" -- it's really a musk-see.
