Aluminum Flora and Fauna Sculptures by Zadok Ben-David

London based artist Zadok Ben-David creates oversized hand cut aluminum sculptures by using skillful techniques, minimal information, and carefully placed lines. His works depicting insect and flower are painted black and often placed together to create whimsical installations. The series of flowers that he did between 2010 and 2012 are entitled Blackflowers and were inspired by nature and the traditions of botanical illustration. Although these works are simplistic and reminiscent of botanical illustrations the artist's use of scale and design are noteworthy interpretations of nature's flora and fauna.
