Miniature Sculptures of Neighborhoods in Los Angeles
Inspired by his neighborhood in Los Angeles, Artist Sergio Jauregui pays homage to it through his miniature models feature the trappings of the metropolis. From the hole-in-the-wall liquor store to newspaper vending machines, Jauregui does an excellent job to craft the exquisite scenes. The material used to create these sculptures are various: plastic tubing, wiring, chipboard or some electronic components.
Another thing is worth mentioning is Jauregui is new to this type of model making and his background isn’t in art. Before creating his handheld sculptures, he worked on elevators. Feeling unfulfilled, he quit that job and took classes on set design. Less than a year ago, he started to translate those skills on a miniature scale and he had only been creating these type of miniature models for just six months!
