Artist Delicately Hand-Cuts Leaves to Create Detailed Works of Art [PHOTOS]
Artist Omid Asadi decided on an unconventional canvas for his artwork: leaves. Asadi hand-cuts designs into leaves to create tiny, delicate pieces. His leaf art features a range of subjects including animals, musicians and bands, and even famous figures like Darwin (along with his theory of evolution).
On his website, Asadi states:
Art for me is the way of looking differently to this world and around myself. I started to think why nobody paid attention to these beautiful leaves and trod on them, because of their name – if they were called flowers we wouldn’t tread on them at all! I wanted to give the leaves another Life and make art from them.
