Artist, Lecturer and Researcher

Daro Montag is an artist, lecturer and researcher who works with living organisms and natural processes. Best known for colourful images made in collaboration with micro-organisms, he is interested in understanding, and bringing to light, the inherent creativity of natural phenomena. This practice has also led to producing art with the assistance of toads, newts, insects and earthworms. His most recent project examines the soil and its significance both culturally and ecologically. Daro is based at University College Falmouth where he leads the RANE research group in art, nature and environment.
