Raku Inoue: Flower Creatures

Yes, trust your eyes. That’s a tiger, made from flowers, by the ever inventive Montreal artist and designer Raku Inoue.  A previous Art Junkie post on Inoue showcased his use of Polymer clay to make 3D designs.  This time, he uses flowers to create tigers, owls, beetles and butterflies in his Natura insects and animals series.

Inoue takes advantage of the natural curvatures and shapes of his source materials to create lively interpretations of animals. In Inoue’s owl, densely-petaled mums form the bird’s fluffy belly, while the angular outlines of alstroemeria create the exoskeleton and horns of a beetle – online feature
