Event Details


The first ever microbial art was created by the father of penicillin, Alexander Fleming, who drew a stick figure in bacteria. Come join us to create ‘living’ art. See the possibilities of this medium in these posts.

This is an example of Sir Alexander Fleming’s artwork.

“His microbial art paintings were technically very difficult to make. He had to find microbes with different pigments and then time his inoculation such that the different species all matured at the same time.”
