Four dozen artists participated in 2021 & 2022, plus another 24 artists made fresh contributions in 2023. Beasts are conceived in quarters, with six artists from each edition taking on the four sections: legs & feet, lower torso, upper torso, or head & neck. The resulting full-bodied beasts can puzzle together in many wild & wonderful ways. With 72 artist contributions so far, we could make 104,976 combos!
Artists Making Monsters!
The Beasting is an exquisite corpse-making challenge featuring blind collaborations by a wide variety of artists. Contributions happen one-by-one at 44 Gaukel Creative Workspace, with each artist making one of four beast body parts in a few hours using limited materials.
