Neuroscience Art: Greg Dunn

Greg Dunn is working on a doctorate in neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania, but he uses the materials that he encounters in his work to create some of the world’s most unusual works of art. He admits “It was a fine day when two of my passions came together upon the realization that the elegant forms of neurons (the cells that comprise your brain) can be painted expressively in the Asian sumi-e style. Neurons may be tiny in scale, but they possess the same beauty seen in traditional forms of the medium (trees, flowers, and animals).”
