STREET ANATOMY IS OBSESSED WITH THE BEAUTY AND INTRIGUE OF HUMAN ANATOMY
Founded in 2007, Street Anatomy is dedicated to showcasing how anatomy is visualized in art, design, and pop culture through our visual blog, gallery shows, and gallery store.
Anatomical illustration and medical imaging are breaking out of the confines of the medical world and are being used by artists and designers to bring a human and emotional element to their art—as well as a touch of memento mori. We strive to showcase and promote artists who consistently find innovative ways to portray anatomy in contemporary art, street art, tattoos, fashion, and beyond.
Vanessa Ruiz, Founder + Editor + Visual Designer
Here you’ll find art that has been featured on Street Anatomy and hand selected to be in the gallery store. We know our audience has a unique taste in all things anatomical and our goal is to become the number one purveyor of all your anatomical art needs.
Gallery shows and events
We take anatomical art out of the online world and into the physical space through inventive gallery shows and events, always creating experiences that delight all of your anatomical senses through art, music, food, performance and beyond.
Looking to add anatomical art to your home, office, or any interior space? Need to find a medical illustrator or animator? We’ve established relationships with some of the most talented artists and professional medical visualizers over the years and we’re happy to recommend someone you’ll love as much as we do.
