Rafael Araujonbsp;is an architect and illustrator from Caracas, Venezuela, who has been drawing beautiful illustrations of nature, entirely by hand (along with a compass, ruler, and protractors), for more than forty years. Each work of art takes an average of 90 hours to create. By applying the Golden Ratio in his geometric formulas, he brings the natural mathematical framework of nature's beautiful designs to life. Rafael's work has been featured in publications like Wired Magazine and exhibited at Stanford University and many other prestigious galleries. nbsp;
