These Modern Murals Are Inspired by Flora and Fauna

Amok Island is an artist from the Netherlands who currently lives in Australia. His murals are inspired by flora and fauna and his minimalistic style makes them modern and edgy.

“Amok Island (born Amsterdam, 1983) is a multi-disciplinary artist from the Netherlands, based in Fremantle, Western Australia and if he wasn’t an artist he would be a biologist. Heavily inspired by early naturalists’ scientific illustrations, his work embodies the accuracy and precision representative of technical drawings, used for identification purposes,” his website reads.

“Island pursues a point of balance where minimal shape and color remain capable of realistically representing a subject. To accomplish this, he renders his subjects to near bare minimum geometric elements of form, and places paramount importance on the use of a carefully considered colour palette.”

He painted murals in over 25 countries and exhibited his art in Australia, Japan, and the Netherlands. Scroll down to see it.
