Creation is the essence of life and death. The venus flytrap is a curious, carnivorous creature that devours its prey with a smirk. This poster is 1 of 402 finalists out of 22,321 entries to the MUMEDI ‘Death with a Smile’ poster competition. I chose to depict this theme through food chains and the circle of life, and settled on this plant as my subject.
