About the Society Awards Past Award Winners 2019 Awardees 2019 (Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize) 2-Dimensional Art - Oscar Sanisidro

Oscar learnt the basics of art and the use of lights and shadows from his father, a fine arts professor, and patience from his mother while in Valencia, his Spanish hometown. By the end of his university studies he had established himself as a scientific illustrator in close collaboration with national researchers. His drawings include scenes from different continents and eras, showing a particular interest on European Cenozoic mammalian faunas. His compositions display not only vertebrates but accurately represent their associated flora, a quality further exemplified in the Miocene scenes of the Miocene of the Valles-Penedes or the series of large-scale drawings of the Eocene Messel Pit commissioned for the Darmstadt Hessisches Landesmuseum.


In conjunction with over a decade of experience as a scientific illustrator, Oscar Sanisidro received his doctorate in vertebrate paleontology while studying the systematics and evolution of fossil and living rhinoceroses at the National Museum of Natural History in Madrid, Spain. This multidisciplinary background as both an artist and a vertebrate paleontologist, has allowed him to include techniques like photogrammetry or geometric morphometrics to the anatomical reconstruction in order to correct the original distortion present in many vertebrate fossils and reconstruct missing areas based on statistical analyses.

His work includes collaborations with a number of international institutions, museums, books, and journals including Nature, Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, or National Geographic among others. Oscar currently works for the KU Biodiversity Institute and Natural History Museum where you can see some of his most recent works on exhibit. In recent years Oscar is sharing first-hand experience on scientific illustration teaching future artists at the University of Kansas and the Universidad de Alcala.
