Artist turns face masks and toilet paper into miniature art

0

For almost a decade, the Japanese artist Tanaka Tatsuya spent every day creating miniature scenes made of everyday objects and tiny figurines. His courses Miniature Calendar series sees tiny subjects posed in miniature worlds where broccoli is a tree, a the thumbtack is a table, and rice balls are mountains. However, since the COVID-19 pandemic, Tatsuya has opted to incorporate objects that reflect the “new normal”. In his latest works, disposable face masks, toilet paper and other health and safety essentials are repurposed as props for miniature outdoor adventure scenes.

In one image, a disposable mask serves as a swimming pool; and in another, descending lengths of toilet paper turn into ski slopes. Tatsuya even made a racing car out of a thermometer by simply adding wheels. No matter the scene, the talented artist proves he can transform even the most mundane objects into exciting landscapes. The reason for his pretty creations? Simply to “add a bit of fun to your daily life”.
