Kyle Bean enjoys using biodegradable, recyclable everyday materials like paper, cardboard, eggshells, pencil shavings and now head-less matchsticks to create his intricate art. Beautiful dragonflies, butterflies and moths are all part of his amazing Stick Insects collection. They are off course vey limited edition as they are unique and require lots of time and patience to produce.

The British designer produced the creepy crawly match series as floating sculptures as well as those in frames, but there are also 100 limited edition A4 size prints. Kyle Bean graduated from the Illustration program at the University of Brighton, South of England, with a First Class Honors Degree back in 2009. He has been specializing in hand crafted models, set design and art direction doing all sorts of jobs that require his skillful hands. He works for big brands like Casio, Wallpaper*, Hermes, the Design Museum and The New York Times to name a few.
