Illustrated Skulls by Meyoko

January 24, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Ecuadorian illustrator Melissa Murillo (aka Meyoko) lives and works in Berlin where she draws some of the most fantastically intricate images I’ve encountered in some time. These two skulls utilizing the abstracted anatomy of insects are by far my favorite, but my guess is many of you will thoroughly enjoy the rest of her portfolio. These two particular pieces are available as limited edition giclee prints in her shop, and you can see her work later this year at Illustrative in Berlin.

Australian architect and paper artist Horst Kiechle recently constructed this geometric paper torso complete with modular organs including lungs, intestines, kidneys, pancreas, stomach and more. The piece was made for the Science Lab of the International School Nadi, Fiji. You should also check out some of his archisculptures. (via my modern met)

Anatomical Self-Dissections by Danny Quirk

November 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Beautiful yet somewhat chilling watercolor paintings by artist Danny Quirk who lives and works out of Springfield, Massachusetts. Via his website:

My anatomical works combine classic poses, in dramatic chiaroscuro lighting, with a very contemporary twist… illustrating what’s underneath the skin, and the portrayed figure dissects a region of their body to show the structures that lay beneath.

I think these are really lovely. And if you like them you’ll most likely appreciate these anatomical paintings by Michael Reedy (nsfw), make sure to zoom in for detail. (via interrupted thoughts)

Figurative Sculptures Made From Tightly Welded Chains by Young-Deok Seo

October 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Korean artist Yeong-Deok Seo creates imposing figurative sculptures using tightly knit configurations of welded bicycle chains and industrial steel chains. While impressive in their intricacy and the apparent skill required to create them, the artwork’s titles such as Infection – Anguish, Infection – Ego, and Addict, suggest the rippled surface created by the materials is not an arbitrary decision. These are figures of individuals in despair, pockmarked with disease, the chains acting as a metaphor for the human condition. See much more of Seo’s work spanning the past several years here.
