Local artist Danny Quirk flexes his talent in a new INSIDER Science spotlight on his anatomical art.

Quirk's piece, "Chest Dissection," even gained a famous admirer... Madonna! The Queen Of Pop used Quirk's work in her tour promotion, adding a portrait shot on top of the piece.

In addition to his anatomical work, Quirk has also released a series calling attention to PTSD and the hidden suffering of our service men and women.

On his website, Quirk notes, "The soldier's name is 'Ayudar' meaning 'to help' in spanish. PTSD is seen as a weakness in the military, and asking for help is like speaking a foreign language. I painted this piece to give troops who suffer something to connect to, and hopefully help them and their struggles. A war in a foreign country is rough, but a war inside your own head is hell."
