French artist Pierre Brault began the creation of impressive sculptures with insects when he read an article in Mont about their upcoming disappearance due to climate change and global warming.
Known in France for creations in fashion and decoration, the artist created this series of colorful works called “Entomology”. Their feature is many details and bright colors. For each of these “insects”, Brault needs two to four weeks of work.
“I work with translucent plexiglass plates to give as much light as possible to the work,” he says.
“I try to come closer to the shape of the insect, creating a surrealist piece.
Among his works is a dragonfly, a ladybug, a butterfly, a beetle, a bee, a grasshopper … and, as he points out, “I will soon discover other species”.
