Precision Cut Leaf Artworks by Lorenzo Duran

 

Lorenzo Manuel Durán is an artist from Cáceres, Spain. It wasn’t until 2005, at the age of 36, that Durán would fully pursue his passion for art and nature. Starting with more traditional oil paintings, he found himself inspired one day by a caterpillar eating a leaf. The moment propelled him to try cutting a leaf with a scalpel. That was 200,8 and the rest is history.

Through a lengthy process of trial and error, Durán has developed his own leaf-cutting technique, taking great care not to ‘spoil’ the leaf during the cutting process. His main tools are a surgical scalpel and dental-pointed device that helps him remove the cut parts from the leaf. Most of his ‘canvases’ are collected from areas right around where he lives/works.

Having completed both group and solo exhibits in the last few years, Lorenzo shares his work on his own website as well as Facebook. Below you will find a small selection of his intriguing artwork.
