Cone Shell

Cone Shell


Inspired by the twisting, sculptured shape of the protective shells found on some predatory sea snails, Rafael Araujo’s Cone Shell brings together striking color and an intricate geometric framework. Created as part of the artist's Calculations series, an ongoing examination of the complexity of life, Cone Shell is a fascinating glimpse at Araujo's unique view of the natural world.

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. Cone Shell was originally created as a pen and ink drawing on canvas with acrylic paint, and is available here exclusively as a premium archival print.
