Johann Brandstetter: Symbioses. The Fine Art of Nature Illustration
His illustrations are known all over the world, his pencil has produced images that hold a firm place in the memories of countless children. At the Haus der Natur, multi-award-winning artist and illustrator Johann Brandstetter is now presenting a new facet of his creative work: the cycle “Symbioses.”
Often not recognizable at first glance, yet indispensable to the biological infrastructure – symbioses come in many forms and are amazingly specific. The close collaboration between creatures of different species is one of the most exciting biological themes of all. Brandstetter’s works now bring the aesthetics of these biological alliances into the foreground. The exquisite illustrations are accompanied by explanations from evolutionary biologists, naturalists, and bestselling author Josef H. Reichholf.
