Lorenzo Duran Silva creates art by cutting shapes out of fallen leaves. "I have been using this technique for more than four years so I have made and sold many pieces, but I have managed to preserve my first one in a frame.
My name is Omid Asadi, I'm 35-years-old from Sale (originally from Iran). 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 treat them like this at all! I wanted to give the leaves another life and make art from them.
Amazing leaf cut-outs by Spanish artist Lorenzo Duran. He uses leaves as the canvas for his cutaway art. After washing and drying the leaf, he carefully cuts away segments to create beautifully detailed art.
