The Wonderful Creations From Flowers and Leaves by Artist Raku Inoue
Nature is a great source of inspiration for artists, which opens up the field of possibilities to give free rein to their imagination, as evidenced by the creations of Canadian artist Raku Inoue using leaves and plants.
Since childhood, the creative has always been interested in art and also practices drawing, painting, graphic design, and even sculpture. But it is thanks to a happy coincidence that he began his artistic project, which is unusual, to say the least. While he was at home, he was attracted by the movement of the rosebush in his garden blown by the wind. He picked a few stems, leaves, and petals which he used for his very first floral composition.
Over the years, he has expanded his series of creations called Natura Animals and Insects where he draws inspiration from nature and the environments around it to bring all kinds of small animals and objects to life. For this, he does not hesitate to bring back various elements from his travels such as twigs, bark, and petals. But it is also based heavily on the changing of the seasons multiplying the creations using rather red and yellow leaves in the fall against sculptures in flowers and green foliage in the spring.
