"Duy Anh Nhan Duc is a visual artist who handles botanical art in a very singular way." — "Though my creations, I try to capture the unique allure of natural vegetation. All is excuse to tell stories and honor plant kingdom."

Via Colossal: "Patiently Arranged Dandelion Works by Botanical Artist Duy Anh Nhan Duc":
"Self-taught botanical artist Duy Anh Nhan Duc uses a steady hand to arrange dandelion blossoms in artful imitations of their flight through the air. His monochrome works are each reminiscent of a universal childhood urge to scatter a dandelion’s seedlings with a single blow, eager to watch the feathery pieces take flight in the wind. With this in mind he carefully dissects a dandelion’s fluff, placing individual seedlings in concentric patterns. In many works gold leaf is used to single out some of the miniature components, adding another layer of precision to his patiently executed fields of flora."
Artist's Instagram feed, including a video from last year showing one of his dandelion pieces under assembly.

He currently has a show — L'Herbier Imaginaire (The Imaginary Herbarium) at the Galerie Bettina in Paris.

Lovely! If you like this, you might enjoy the work of Susanna Bauer, who I recently stumbled across on Instagram.
