Ed Martinet is a French sculptor who incorporates materials used for other purposes into works of art. The parts are screwed together into an art form. Many of his sculptures are inspired by biology. His insect sculptures capture the rich details of his insect models. Some, like the yellow jacket entering the glass (below) capture common behaviors.
Martinet was first formally introduced to insects as a 10 year old school boy by a teacher. It did not inspire him to become an entomologist. It did, however, become inspiration for his sculptures. Many of the sculptures featured in his 2013 exhibition are of insects. Those interested in insect art should definitely visit his website.
