Here is some of the most amazing medical art we have seen recently: neurons painted expressively in the Asian sumi-e style. Greg Dunn, working on a doctorate in neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania, enjoys Asian art and paints neurons like the Japanese, Chinese, and Korean masters painted nature. His neurons replicate trees and flowers on mostly golden backgrounds.
Actually, he paints trees as well, but you would be hard-pressed to guess whether some of the artworks represent neurons or trees on first sight. Prints, but also gold leafs, scrolls and folding screens can be admired and ordered on his website, linked below.
