Russian artist makes collages from butterfly wings

Since he was a child, Russian artist Vadim Zaritsky has loved and collected butterflies. He knows many other collectors and it saddened him to see them throw away damaged butterfly bodies. Then he found a creative way of recycling them. Zaritsky uses the wings to make collages: (Pics)

Over the past five years, the artist has created more than 100 pictures of varying size and theme. As artist and entomologist, he clearly prefers restrained color combinations to glaring fluorescent colors, which he uses very rarely. His works include still lifes, genre pieces, philosophical works, portraits and landscapes. He has even copied some celebrated masters, such as Van Gogh, Gauguin, Picasso and Vrubel.
