An artist from Montréal (Canada), Raku Inoue, created a series of artwork called Natura Insects. The artist uses different freshly cut flowers to transform them into insect shape colorful sculptures. These floral arrangements turn the bugs into real and beautiful artworks and shows the creativity of the artist to approach his subject of matter.

The collection features 9 different insects such as, beetles, ladybugs and butterflies. In order to reproduce all the details of the winged creatures, Inoue used every element from the flowers and arranged them on plain white paper. To make every creation colofur, he used vibrant petals. All the other details like legs, antennas or pincers were wisely sculpted from specific parts of flowers, such as tiny leaves, fragile stems or prematurely plucked buds

Natura Insect cleverly reduce the connotations attached to his subjects. Indeed, the colorful flowers sculpted into bugs made the viewers change their pre-conceived idea of insects being creepy-crawly and useless creatures. It opened the spotlight on this fascinating and unique fauna.
