The arthrpods of Nissen's Bug Show
Hundreds of millions of years before man appeared on earth, the arthropods were here. The phylum Arthropoda is the largest in the animal kingdom, with over a million described species, and comprising approximately 84 percent of all known species of animals. Their versatility and variety have enabled them to thrive and survive in every habitat on Earth, including the art exhibits that have come to be known as Charles Nissen's BUG SHOW.
Nissen began his BUG series in 2008 and was initially surprised by the enthusiastic feedback he received on his new direction. Positive word-of-mouth led to more commissioned works, and so the BUG series continued to grow. Fortunately for Nissen, the sheer number of Arthropods provides an endless supply of potential models. . .
