Insectism’s Tak Hau is Sharing the Beauty of Insects With the World

“Beautiful” probably isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you think of insects, but Tak Hau seems to disagree. This talented artist is the founder of Insectism, and he’s using his platform to make people fall in love with insects by transforming them into art.

Tak Hau used to be a successful wedding dress designer but decided to pursue a different passion when the wedding market completely unraveled in the face of the global pandemic in 2020. He was always a fan of entomology and enjoyed framed artwork featuring butterflies and beetles, so he decided to explore this passion further.

Insectism was born after he learned how to set and mount delicate butterflies, and started experimenting with using insects in his artwork.

“My style is a bit outside the box, perhaps rendering something that would make you do a double-take, evoke a fantasy, or stimulate the imagination. I often like creating something that is both beautiful and thought-provoking,” he explains on his Etsy page.

Hau is now on the quest to spark imagination and provoke a conversation through his art, while also using it to raise awareness about the importance of protecting the environment by always using ethically collected insects in his art.
