Gerald Heffernon is a surreal sculptor who is recognized for his creations of lifelike works of art that shock, amuse, delight and disturb viewers. His whimsical and realistic portrayals of animals range from domestic cats, dogs, and birds all the way to life-size jungle creatures and hybrid humanoids with animal features. While at first glance many of these animals appear as though they could exist in nature, these animals are not always what they seem. The artist lives and works near Davis, California and has been producing animal-inspired sculptures for over twenty-five years. His art has been shown in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Paris and other cities in the United States and Europe.
