Lélegzetelállítóan részletgazdag miniatűröket készít ez az ausztrál művész
Joshua Smith célja, hogy aki fotón látja az alkotásait, az ne tudja megállapítani, hogy makettet lát vagy az eredeti épületet.
Ennek érdekében pedig a miniatürizált épületek minden apró részletét visszadja munkáin, legyen az lehullott vakolat, béna graffiti, esőáztatta, kifakult plakát vagy elszíneződött falrészlet. Kartont, farostlemezt és festéket használ miniépületeihez. Elképesztően pontos és aprólékos.

With the changing face of the East End underway with many buildings about to be demolished I am currently working on a new build of the Gerard & Goodman building which is being demolished. This building has always been one of my favourites even long before creating miniatures. My aim is to focus on a series of Adelaide miniatures for an upcoming exhibition in South Australia. Also this is not the miniature it is a photo of the actual building! #miniature #sculpture #urbanart #urbandecay #urbex #graffiti #abandoned #abando #adelaide #radelaide #southaustralia
2 weeks ago I acheived my lifelong dream of having an exhibition in New York City. A dream I have always had ever since I started my art career all those years ago. Tonight is the game changer, I exhibit my work in the VOLTA Art fair in New York City, one of the biggest and best art fairs in the USA. This has been an incredibly surreal experience and has happened all so quickly yet has taken me 17 years of hard work to get to this point. I would not be at this point though without the support and encouragement by people such as my parents, Kab 101 and Sooz, Rah, Yasmin, Chris Tamm, Andrew & Jacinta, Ali & Garth, Daniela, Summa, Tsunami, Thanh, Jack, Sair, Catherine, Matt, Tom Buchanan, Blake & Ellen, Rae and so many others. To you all I say thankyou. To everyone I say thankyou for your support as I continue to move forward making all things miniature. My work will be on display at @murielguepingallery at the VOLTA Art fair, Pier 90 in Manhattan from March 1-5. Unfortunately I cannot be there in person as much as I wanted to be but please check it out if you are in the area. Photo credit: Andrew Beveridge/ASB creative @asbcreative_pro_photo

Today I said farewell to my most ambitious miniature yet, a 4 storey building based on 23 Temple Street in Kowloon, Hong Kong. It took me 3 months to complete working 7 days a week and 10-16 hour days. The work will be on display at the VOLTA Art fair in NYC in March showing with Muriel Guipen gallery @murielguepingallery. All my life I have dreamed of having an exhibition in New York and now this finally becomes a reality. Photo courtesy of Andrew Beveridge/ASB creative.

This afternoon I added the finishing touches to my latest miniature for the upcoming VOLTA Art fair in NYC in March showing with Muriel Guipen gallery of Manhattan. The miniature is based off the Liberated X Bookshop and shoe repairs on Flinders Street in Melbourne. I added a lot of small details such as tiny padlocks and bolts, the awning and it even features some artwork of Melbourne based duo Creature Creature @creaturecreaturestudios
