Annatomix, a self-taught artist from Birmingham, UK, creates geometric forms, resembling animals, inspired by the traditional ancient Japanese art – origami
The artist uses everyday materials of all sizes, uses her imagination and creates original artworks which conquer buildings, public environments and make cities adventurous and full of secret pictures.
Bees and rabbits create a nice game of galloping while they are actually made of discarded paper bags and wooden waste, while foxes and magnificent falcons leap on the walls from one building to another. They are made of acrylic paint and sprays, pastels, graffiti and ordinary ink, the animals which Annatomix creates become a fantastic element in the urban environment and at the same time react to the atmospheric conditions.
Throughout her whole life, the artist has been interested in science, history, religion, and philosophy, which has led her to current ideas and artworks which are "focusing on nature, science, and their relationship to spirituality." She uses the sacred and great natural laws of geometry as a starting point for exploring a wide range of themes, including the creation of the universe, the evolution of species and their extinction, repetitions and cycles of history, the illusion of reality, and many other moral and philosophical considerations.
Annatomix shares her desire to create an art that has a sense of presence, whether it is a large artwork, such as the huge graphic geometric paintings, or a small, hidden work that reminds of a hidden gem.
Her goal is not only to provide the viewer with a visual puzzle to solve, but to try and draw his attention to the divine science, as well as the unlimited possibilities of the human mind
Annatomix's latest artworks can be seen this week in Sweden as part of the Fine Arts and Street Art Festival. Well, if you do not have the opportunity to visit the northern country to enjoy her works, you can explore her Instagram profile, where she publishes many of her completed projects.
