About Ivan Voltski

Hello!
I am a scientist working on cell biology and evolution of marine protists. The biodiversity populating our planet presents immense variety of aesthetically attractive forms; this is one of the strongest factors driving my interest.

The study of organisms morphology remains an important tool in modern biological taxonomy, producing great results when combined with genetic techniques. At the same time, I think, it provides ample material for artists, especially those who seek inspiration from less traditional subjects. Being unable to choose between pure art or science, I am trying to combine these two pathways. It is known that most interesting phenomena arise along boundaries, where two states of matter or medium interact with each other!

I mostly make graphical artwork [so-called "zoological" illustrations] using various rendering techniques, such as fine liners, ink, nibs, iso-/rapidograph pens and pencils. Occasionally, however, I introduce color (e.g. acrylic), and also create vector lineart. Also, at times I deviate from my traditional field of subjects =]
I hope you enjoy the feed!!
