There is so much great art out there in this world - hard for me to limit it to anatomical! But here are some interesting ones:
- streetanatomy.com - a variety "Showcasing human anatomy in art, design + pop culture"
- anatomy body painting - by Danny Quirk (I LOVE painting bodies!)
- Odra Noel's scientific art - cellular art, silk paintings, mitochondrial art - amazing!
- Juana Gomez - embroidery, thread art, female anatomy in print and fabric, personal story.
Gratitude to Saskia Wolsak for her beautiful photography and ongoing inspiration.
