Shy Studio is an independent motion graphics studio founded by 3D animators Misha Shyukin and Hannes Hummel. Their latest project centers around creating mesmerizing digital flowers inspired by organic structures and natural patterns. They recreate the natural world through a series of lifelike botanicals. The project is called Artificial Bloom.
Shy Studio's Artificial Bloom - Digital Flowers Inspired by Natural Patterns
In an interview with DeMilked, Misha said that the artist's inspiration for the project was their own fascination with flowers and the way they are structured, and the way their petals and leaves are arranged and follow certain patterns.
“We really enjoyed trying to re-create those natural patterns or even using them as a base to generate our own procedural flowers and plants.”
The Artificial Bloom Series
Artificial Bloom is a self-initiated series exploring the mesmerizing variety of organic structures and natural patterns. Symmetry, tessellations, logarithmic spiral shapes, and patterns within patterns - taking a biomorphic design approach to living forms as a starting point of our visual exploration. The result is a series of still-life prints and animated short clips emphasizing the aesthetic of our nature.
Shy Studio's Artificial Bloom Endless Intracies Inherent to Nature's Designs
The digital renderings showcase the complexity of organic structures while also highlighting the fractals and endless intricacies inherent to nature’s designs.
“We are only two artists, and when one of us had some spare time, we would pick a flower or plant from our Pinterest board as a base and start developing our own artistic interpretation of it. And It was fascinating to find that a lot of floral and plant structures follow certain mathematical rules, which we could replicate and apply to our own structures.”
