He Lets Creepy-Crawlies Get Their Feet Wet as Painters By Nick Thomas

In the somewhat obscure world of animal art — where chimps, horses and elephants learn to grip paint-laden brushes and thrash randomly at a canvas to create abstract paintings — Steven Kutcher’s “bug art” stands out. Commanding a team of animal artists far too small to hold any paintbrush, Kutcher uses insects as living, moving paintbrushes to fashion his art.
“I’ll take a bug in my hand and, leg by leg, load the paint onto each leg,” says Kutcher, 63, from his Los Angeles home. The bugs — flies, cockroaches and beetles — are then let loose on a prepared canvas to scratch out their “masterpieces.”
A keen environmentalist, Kutcher ensures his paint-soaked insects are unharmed by the ordeal. “I use water-based, nontoxic paints that easily wash off,” he says. “I have to take good care of them. After all, they are artists!”
