Benjamin Flouw is a Paris-based artist who has also worked in London on animated productions. He designed some of the hybrid art/photo backgrounds for the second season of The Amazing World of Gumball, two examples of which are below:

The effect of Benjamin’s artwork, constructed with simplified geometric forms, is sort of low-poly count 3D objects. The effect is amplified by how he applies textures onto his forms. One of the funniest examples is this series of stuff on top of dogs. See the dogs and more from Benjamin on his website and Tumblr.
