“From the Latin “venter” meaning belly.
Ventral is fifty percent of the visual cortex, associated with object recognition and form representation. Connected to the brains’ limbic system, it elicits emotive stimulation throughout the body.

Ventral is an artist currently based in Leeds. You can view work via the Ventral website, Flickr or the blog.
