 "Sailing with a Rhinoceros" by Alfredo Sosabravo. 

In this artwork, the central figure, a stylized representation of a rhinoceros, is painted with vivid greens and accented with patches of contrasting patterns, giving it a textured, almost tactile appearance. Its eye, detailed with concentric circles, draws the viewer in, while the playful horn suggests a lighthearted twist to the creature's typically formidable presence.

Accompanying the rhinoceros are fish and a swimming man, each adorned with their own unique patchwork of designs and hues, swimming amidst a sea of sharp zigzag patterns that evoke the feeling of rippling water. Above, a moon or sun-like celestial body radiates patterned beams, casting a warm glow over the scene. The background is segmented into blocks of bold pinks and blues, separated by thick black lines that add structure to the composition. Each element is outlined with decisive black strokes that define the shapes and add a graphic quality, characteristic of Sosabravo's distinctive style.
