The Fine Art of Diorama

My favorite childhood memory (other than not paying bills) is arts and crafts, and in-particular making dioramas. Most people have created one in their lifetime, using an old shoebox and glueing the hell of it until all the pieces stick. However it’s not something everyone grows out of and the old shoebox project has transformed into fine art. But instead of explaining it, let’s take a look at three amazing 3-dimensional worlds by extremely imaginative and creative artists.

Note: the amount of detail and expertise in Lori’s work is phenomenal. She is by far one of my favorite artists I’ve come across! Website to check out more!:
