Lorenzo Manuel Durán is a self-taught artist from Spain that started off with oil paintings on canvas. One day he was inspired by a leaf-eating caterpillar to switch to leaf canvases instead! Initial trials ended up with a lot of “wounded” leaves that end up in the trash but after a while, Lorenzo could create surgical-level leafy masterpieces with just dental utilities, a scalpel, and his hands (find out more on the process he uses here).
Lorenzo has taken part in solo and group exhibitions in the last few years, and is constantly looking for ideas for new leaf art pieces. His work is available for purchase on his website and Facebook profile. The following showcase of leaf cutting art by Lorenzo Manuel Durán serves as a reminder that anything is possible if you follow your dreams.
