Spanish artist Lorenzo Duran has spent the last four years creating works of art from one of the most abundant materials in the world. We see these materials almost everyday for most of the year, until they are driven away by the cold winds of winter and sent packing to the dump. What am I talking about? Leaves, of course. 🙂
Working out of his home in Guadalajara, Lorenzo focuses primarily on cutting intricate illustrations from dried leaves.
Many of his works depict insects and animals.
But he also explores geometric shapes and does custom work.

We can”t imagine the time and dedication involved, nor can we begin to guess how often a leaf probably tore accidentally, ruining a masterpiece. No matter though… Bravo!
