Artist Lorenzo Durán Silva lives and works in Guadalajara, Spain where for the last four years he’s focused primarily on cutting intricate illustrations from dried leaves. These stunning works of art are set to blow people away after a sculptor painstakingly cut shapes out of fallen leaves.
Silva, 43, was inspired to create the delicate work after watching a caterpillar make holes in a leaf by eating it. He collects foliage in his garden and parks which he then spends weeks transforming into beautiful works of art.
He often depicts animals and insects as shown above, but has explored a wide variety of geometric patterns and also does custom work on request. (via fer1972)
