spanish artist lorenzo duran intricately cuts tiny patterns, designs and imagery out of collected leaves from where he resides. using a surgical scalpel and a dental pointed devise, which he determined was best for cutting and removing the small segments, duran creates miniature art pieces out of materials found in the natural world. his newest work is an introspective collection of leaves that include cut-out imagery referencing human body parts, faces, and patterns found in nature. you can see a collection of his previous work, where he cut tiny animals and complex geometric patterns out of his leaf canvas, in designboom’s coverage here.
