Japan based artist, Takanori Aiba uses materials like stone clay, epoxy putty, copper line, plastic, and resin to create some fantastical sculptures. Those miniature structures were inspired by his earlier experiences in making bonsai and illustrating mazes. Bonsai reflects the Japanese traditional aesthetic sense of expressing the magnificence of nature in a small potted plant. However, the density of decoration and the rich stories of Aiba’s works contains extraordinary times and spaces which differ from the bonsai world determined by plants physiology. The level of detail and intricacy in his work is truly mind-blowing. Each sculpture is like a miniature world, bursting with life and stories.
