Rafael applies the Golden Ratio to his geometric formulas and leaves the construction lines intact to highlight this natural mathematical framework. Not surprisingly, it can take him up to 100 hours to create a single composition.
Rafael Araujo is an architect and illustrator born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1957. For over 40 years he has been drawing beautiful illustrations of nature, entirely by hand. At an old drafting table, he adeptly renders the mathematical brilliance of nature with just a pencil, compass, ruler and a protractor. He was fifteen when he first observed intelligent patterns in the work of nature and learned about PHI, the Golden Ratio. This ratio equals 1.618 and is found everywhere in the realm of nature. By applying the Golden Ratio in his geometric formulas the secret of nature's beautiful designs unfolded before his eyes. In his illustrations, he leaves the construction lines intact to highlight this natural mathematical framework. Rafael has been featured in CNN World, Wired Magazine, WWF, and exhibited at Stanford University and many other prestigious galleries. With his work, it is his greatest hope to inspire a much-needed love for our natural environment.
