A series of hand-made floral insects by multidisciplinary artist/designer Raku Inoue based in Montreal. The insects look so lifelike that from a distance they could be mistaken for the real thing. Inoue states that these flower-based insects were inspired by the Japanese art of flower arrangement or ikebana, using materials that are at hand.
But especially for this type of work, the goal is to not overthink, to try to create in a very natural way. When I work with different publicity agencies, they often have a specific direction that they want me to take. So I just came up with this exercise to make me to be more apt to create in a more spontaneous way. Often the best work is done when going with the flow.You can see more of Raku Inoue's work on Instagram.
