Consider what would happen if we suddenly shrank and the world around us became huge for us. What would we do? We’d have to reconstruct our dwellings from scraps, bugs would be a much bigger concern, and travel would take much longer.
Tatsuya Tanaka, a Japanese artist, produces miniature dioramas of tiny people living in a huge world. Tatsuya creates imaginative and entertaining settings out of everyday items like as food, office supplies, and technology. The artist also frequently portrays well-known characters from anime like Dragon Ball or Studio Ghibli. The purpose of these dioramas is to lift people’s emotions while also displaying charming and stunning surroundings in a fresh and creative way.
In a statement on his website, Tatsuya Tanaka says: “Broccoli and parsley may occasionally resemble a forest of trees, and tree leaves floating on the surface of the water may at times resemble miniature boats, as many people have imagined. A small view of daily life can provide us with many amusing ideas.”
“As a result, I began assembling a ‘Miniature Calendar’ to illustrate this way of thinking through images. It basically showcases diorama-style characters surrounded by everyday items in these images. “Since I daily update these photographs daily on my website and SNS page, it got its name as Miniature Calendar.”
Below you’ll find some further information about the artist and his past work. “Miniature and resemblance artist. 1982 – Born in Kumamoto Prefecture (Japan).
