50 Beautiful Bird Illustrations

In all cultures we come across the Bird Symbolism. The birds ability to fly high in the sky carries in a natural way the symbol of freedom as expressed in the Greek myth of Icarus. For example, the eagle is a simbol of majesty, that is why we found it on the coat of arms of various empires. Peace is symbolized by the dove. Most birds are considered to be positive symbols or signs of eternal life. However, there are exceptions confirmed by vultures and raptors such as owls.

In literature and art, metaphors around the symbol of the bird exist since the earliest times. Psychologists were fascinated too, therefore a lot of them have done some research. The image of the bird is attributed to symbolic expressions. The symbolism associated to wings is ancient and throught the history new different meanings were added. Birds are taken to be anything from spiritual messengers to inspiration for Romantic poets and writers.

Birds can represent our souls, or stand for wisdom and the power of thought. They have visual beauty, they sing and hold the secrets of the universe (‘a little bird told me’). Birds have always inspired artists by their diversity, their colors and by their amazing liberty to fly.

This article includes 50 graphic designs and illustrations, next to the universe of international artists around the same topic: ‘Bird’. These artists have discovered in birds so much personality and texture to work with. Some are done partially digitally, some all by ink or in the old techniques of drawing and painting.

I picked these charming and distinctive illustrations because they are a great way to get in touch with the outdoors. They bring a little bit of nature’s beauty inside our homes.
