Blue Morpho Double Helix

Blue Morpho Double Helix


Where most of us simply see a butterfly fluttering in the breeze, artist Rafael Araujo sees an intricate mathematical framework governing the subtle motions of flight. Created as part of the artist's Calculations series, an ongoing examination of the complexity of life, Blue Morpho Double Helix teams Araujo's unique vision of the natural world with vivid color and precise lines.

One might think these illustrations are born from a CPU, but in fact they are drafted entirely by hand in a sublime mix of mathematical perfection and artistic execution. Blue Morpho Double Helix was originally created as a pen and ink drawing on canvas with acrylic paint, and is available here exclusively as a premium archival print.
