Star constellations have fascinated people endlessly for millennia, which is why it’s surprising I haven’t encountered them more frequently in artwork until coming across these Chris Koehler illustrations. In several images, Koehler has overlaid astronomically correct constellations on top of beautifully painted pictures to produce stunning and original visuals. Koehler even connects the constellations with lines in order to help viewers better identify which stars he’s used in his mesmerizing paintings.

Chris Koehler, for those who want to know more, is a San Francisco-based artist and illustrator. His wondrous images have already garnered the attention of MTV, Kenneth Cole, Wired, The Boston Globe, OnEarth Magazine and SF Weekly, whom have all hired him for various art assignments.
