Artist Raku Inoue amazingly crafts insects from freshly cut flowers and leaves. Born in Tokyo, Raku Inoue moved to Montreal when he was 9 years old. Growing up, he was influenced by both cultures, Japanese origami, and Canadian graffiti. As a budding artist, he felt that these two different types of arts have a connection to each other.
Raku Inoue’s Natura Insects series is a collection of insect sculptures made from hand-arranged floral elements. In this series, he uses several types of freshly-cut flowers to create colorful insect sculptures.
