Fun Link Friday: The Tiny Worlds of Tanaka Tatsuya

In previous Fun Link Fridays we’ve featured the miniature worlds of Takanori Aiba‘s bonsai trees, making fantastical spaces with tiny models and growing techniques. This week our fun link is the art of Tanaka Tatsuya, who was recently featured on Spoon & Tamago for his work with more everyday objects.

For the past decade, every day (every day!) Tanaka has been creating mini landscapes using food, combs, dinnerware, pencils… any object can become the setting of a tiny adventure! He now has nearly 4,000 of these little calendar pieces, each more magical than the last.

His work is being featured at The Mizuho Museum in Nagano, but you can also follow his teeny worlds through his Twitter and Instagram. Enjoy!
