Diorama Artist Hand-Crafts Realistic Miniature Worlds

0

taiwanese artist Hank Cheng creates amazing dioramas that are so realistic you can almost imagine tiny people living inside. From run-down neighborhood grocery stores to cluttered bedrooms, each piece captures real places from the artist’s memory and pays homage to his community.

Cheng created his first model five years ago when he was inspired to recreate a Japanese restaurant he visited frequently as a student. In no time he became a master of his craft and today he creates his dioramas full time and sells them all over the world.

Each completed diorama is made from recycled wood, metal and other materials. Together they form handmade accessories to bring them to life. In one room, Cheng created countless miniature vinyl albums for a model record store, and in another he made tiny glass bottles and a crate to complete an alley scene. The talented artist can do just about anything. “When people ask me if there’s something I can’t do” he says“I say jokingly, ‘Only air and sun.'”

Check out some of Cheng’s miniature creations below and check out more of his dioramas on his website and instagram.
