Astonishingly Detailed Masterpieces Painted on the Exoskeletons of Dead Insects

Insect-loving artists Chris Brand and Evan Skrederstu, create incredibly intricate miniature artworks transforming the backs of dead roaches, spiders and mantises into beautiful masterpieces. The story goes that Skrederstu and Brand were painting murals in the L.A. River area a decade ago and accidentally sprayed a little bug blue and thought, "Hey, we've painted just about everything we could, why not bugs? " explains Skrederstu, who with Brand has always collected and enjoyed rare insects. With millions of unpainted bugs and even more ideas, the possibilities are endless.
