Paintings inspired by proteins. Sometimes depicted in their natural environment using famous artists styles, other times depicted as part of our life.
Amyloid-beta Precursor at Sunset
Ion Channels at Night
Amyloid-beta Precursor at SunsetAmyloid-beta precursor is an important membrane protein involved in neuronal growth but it can also be one's downfall when it triggers Alzheimer's. It's upright state resembled that of cattails, watching a beautiful sunset.
Ion Channels at NightMy thesis cover. I combined love and passion for science and art to create this one. The channel here is the glycine receptor, a pentameric ligand-gated ion channel. This is also the very first painting in the Protein Art series. It is inspired from my PhD work and van Gogh's Starry Night painting, which I am in love with. There is one thing in this world I wish was mine and it is Starry Night. I am jealous of the museum that owns it.
