Michele Banks’ Biological Watercolors

Last year, we featured some wonderful biology-inspired art that struck our fancy. Now, we’re utterly smitten by Artologica — a series of original watercolor paintings by artist Michele Banks exploring the beauty of natural phenomena, from cell division to tachycardia to bacteria.

Heart Attack | Original watercolor painting of an EKG showing a myocardial infarction
Mini Blue Mitosis 2 | Starts with a single cell on the top left and ends up with two daughter cells on the bottom right
Brain Cells
Blue – Green Exploration 1 | Reminiscent of natural forms under a microscope
Cell Division 6 | The beauty of mitosis

Grab some of her original paintings on Etsy and make your living room a true shrine to the intersection of art and science.
