Despite having a relatively short career, Joshua Smith‘s miniature works are gaining global recognition.
Smith has been working on his latest series for the past two years, and while he’s shared photos of the incredible models, he’s now shared their incredible interiors with some immaculate footage.
South Australian based artist Joshua Smith has created a name for himself replicating urban snapshots from shops and buildings to garbage bins and shipping containers.
Before turning to his current project, Smith established and ran Espionage Gallery in Adelaide for four years, showcasing over 600 local, national and international artists.
As well as teaching himself stencil art, he also has the natural capacity for miniature art, where he mainly focuses on the “often overlooked aspects of the urban environment such as grime, rust, decay to discarded cigarettes and graffiti perfectly recreated in 1:20 scale miniatures.”
So far he’s reimagined landscapes in Australia, Hong Kong and the USA – without any apparent fault.
How well did he do? Compare the model with the Google image street view image below:
