Graham Owen Realistic Insect Art


Graham Owen is a renowned artist known for his realistic fly tying and insect art. His journey began with creating lifelike fishing flies, which eventually led to a full-time career in crafting replica insects for Hollywood productions. He has contributed to numerous movies and TV shows, including "Breaking Bad," by providing intricately detailed insect props. In addition to his work in the film industry, Owen has gained recognition for his collaboration with famous designers and artists, such as the renowned designer Ingo Maurer. His artistry in replicating butterflies and insects is characterized by astonishing attention to detail, showcasing his talent and expertise in this unique form of art

"Primarily, I make detailed insect replicas, combining realism and impressionism, to express my artistic interpretation of the magical micro-cosmos of beauty and diversity of hidden worlds beyond the familiar. In essence - more art than science."

All commissions, whether private or corporate, are welcome, and to each project I bring a creative eye and professional commitment.
