I know. Amazing isn’t it? And you thought this post was going to be about New Year’s Resolutions, didn’t you?
Lorenzo Durán is a Spanish artist who must have amazing eyesight and an aversion to too much coffee to keep his steady hand.
He is perfecting his skill for leaf cutting using ancient Chinese traditional techniques. I think they look pretty perfect already.
The leaves are picked, washed dried and pressed before the cutting process begins. Lorenzo uses his drawing attached to the leaf which is peeled off at the end. This last step can lead to the ruination of days of work if not done properly.
You can read more about his thoughts and processes in his own words on his website here.
