Smile Inducing Miniature Art by Tatsuya Tanaka

We’ve featured the work of the oh so creative Tatsuya Tanaka before and we’re happy to share more of his art with you in a time when we could all use a little cheer. Tatsuya is a master at taking your everyday objects and creating a whimsical miniature scene that we just can’t get over. Be it surgical masks that we all now know too well, the recently coveted roll of toilet paper or a hairbrush, an object that may be currently relegated to the bottom of your drawer, Tanaka creatively gives these objects a whole new life. His work is then placed into a “miniature calendar” collection depicting diorama style figures. Check out some of our recent favorites below and be sure to view the original post by our lovely contributor, Gisele Muller, here
