Michele Banks’ Biological Watercolors

Last year, we featured some wonderful biology-inspired art that struck our fancy. Now, we’re utterly smitten by Artologica — a series of original watercolor paintings by artist Michele Banks exploring the beauty of natural phenomena, from cell division to tachycardia to bacteria.

Grab some of her original paintings on Etsy and make your living room a true shrine to the intersection of art and science.
