Into the Nature









Nature has been cherished by all of mankind and has been a beloved subject for artists and continues to be today. Artistic confrontation, celebration and manipulation of nature, has never been more prevalent. A young generation of designers, illustrators and artists are taking nature as a starting point and bestowing upon it great importance.
Into the Nature takes you on a visual exploration through nature and how it is being perceived, portrayed and visualized in the contemporary visual arts of the twenty first century. From romanticism to art brut, flora and fauna are reinvented through ravishing imagery ranging from classical and analog approaches to cutting edge graphic design, illustration, photography, objects and 3D installations. Blending various mediums and materials, classic and new alike, it presents us with a (r)evolutionary vision of nature.
