Artiscopic Cellular Art is a new art exhibition that merges the visual arts with the science under a microscope. Artiscopic is the first art exhibition to be held at the Rinker Health Science Campus in Irvine, CA, and is currently on display in the Health Sciences Study Commons.

The Leatherby Libraries is excited to partner with Schmid College of Science & Technology, Crean College of Health and Behavioral Sciences, and the School of Pharmacy to present this landmark project, which features works by Dr. Mohommad Kamal, a.k.a. KIMʘ.


The artist, Dr. Mohammad Kamal (KIMʘ), creates abstract pieces from human, animal, and plant cells.

A pathologist by day, KIMʘ creates stunning, naturally occurring images by using a microscope to explore human, animal and plant cells. Regarding his work as a pathologist and artist, KIMʘ states:

“It is not often that interesting shapes and patterns take place. I am doing my job and only focus on the task at hand. But then, like when a coal miner unexpectedly discovers a diamond, the feeling of excitement is overwhelming! I just can’t wait to share its beauty with the world.”

The exhibition runs from January 30 through May 30, 2018, and is on display in the Health Sciences Study Commons at the Rinker Health Science Campus. An opening reception will be held in Atrium 131 on Wednesday, February 21, from 6 – 8 p.m.

Join the artist for a Gallery Walkthrough on Saturday, April 14, 2018 from 1 – 3 p.m.
