Artist Creates Spectacularly Gorgeous Flower Insects Using Just Petals, Leaves, And Stems

Bugs and insects aren’t normally celebrated for their beauty.

Sure, a close-up may reveal how intricate and amazing these animals are. But let’s be honest, no one is trying to get that close to any creepy-crawlies.

In fact, people are more likely to unleash their pets on a spider than they are to get anywhere near it themselves.

However, one artist reimagined the potential of insects and decided to embrace their beauty using a medium that is both unexpected and surprising — flowers.

Raku Inoue, who was born in Japan and now lives in Montreal, is responsible for these beautiful creations, and for his brand and vision, Reikan Apparel.

The company’s focus is to “promote creativity and offer inspiration to those who seek them.”

It is very clear by the beauty and delicacy of these flower insects that Raku means what he says.
