Imagining the inner body

When anatomy meets creativity, imagination is the only limit

September 4, 2013

Anatomy, the ancient science of describing the structures of living things, has always been a wonderful source of visual inspiration. There are countless examples of illustrations, collages, paintings and sculptures that use anatomical elements as a central reference (one of our favorite places to find them is Street Anatomy), and we decided to pick a few of those art works to feature here in this quick post.

These particular examples all have the anatomy of the Human Body as the main element and it’s possible you’ll recognize a couple of them that already caught the attention of major websites and blogs.
