Man vs Nature

Man vs Nature symbolises a balance between the natural and man made environment. This is something most architects tend to forget when they design their chosen architectural master pieces as they get lost in the urban context and grain of cities like London and the smaller towns surrounding it.


The image has won the media over on various occasions and have been described as iconic in it's simplest form.


The finished product were laser cutted in acrylic with 2010 engraved butteflies in the background.


Another painting has also been done where the main forms/structure are in white, which represent the purity of both nature and man, while the background remains a constant blurr of motion caused by millions of colourful butterflies being released into the earths atmosphere.
