Australian self-taught artist Joshua Smith builds incredibly detailed miniatures of buildings in the scale of 1:20. The miniatures are meticulously crafted in hyper-realistic fashion, showcasing the overlooked segments in the glittering and glamorous cities such as Los Angeles, Sydney and Hong Kong, among others. He impeccably captures the drab, deteriorating buildings in the urban settings, complete with “grime, rust, decay to discarded cigarettes and graffiti.” Below are some of his selected pieces that may give you nostalgic memories. :)
Enjoy this amazing work of art!
