Realistic Body Anatomy Art

Danny Quirk’s (previously here) realistic anatomical paintings look like portals that let us take a peek inside the human body to explore its inner workings. To create them, Quirk mostly uses liquid latex, acrylic paint, and Sharpies. “For whatever reason, people tend to view [anatomy art] as ‘morbid’ or ‘creepy.’ Part of the goal of these pieces is to combat this ignorance and educate individuals as to the beauty that lies beneath,” Danny told My Modern Met. “Having spent time working with cadavers and creating illustrations for medical publications, I got to experience first hand just how complex yet delicate the body is, wonderfully illustrating beauty is more than skin-deep.”
