Macoto Murayama’s Flower Illustrations

Macoto Murayama, an artist based in Japan, recently created some incredible computer-generated illustrations of flowers.  Pink Tentacle points us to a collection of his work that includes some very intricate geometric and mechanical structures.  The unparalleled delicacy that comes through in these meticulously constructed illustrations are reminiscent of Charles Darwin’s illustrations retold with modern technology.

Murayama’s interpretation of a Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) is certainly not something that could be created in the field, but like an episode of Planet Earth, it makes you appreciate the complexity of the natural world.  The organic beauty comes through even in such an inorganic format and without further ado, we present a collection of his images:
