Instead Of Tossing Fallen Leaves Away, He Used Them To Create Luminously Beautiful And Detailed Carvings

diy leaf art silhouette design

Omid Asadi is an artist originally from Iran. He began his active interest in art as a child when he began drawing on flowers, which would later inspire him to begin using nature in his art. Asadi has had his work on display in exhibits in London and Manchester, England as well as Milan, Italy. His technique starts with him sketching the outline he is going to create for each particular leaf, and then he begins carving the outline into the leaf by hand with a knife.

Get ready to check out this unreal hybrid form of self-expression that combines modern art with Mother Nature.

1. Scarecrow

Asadi creates an entire landscape on one leaf as the scarecrow disintegrates into the valley behind him, and birds fly into the horizon.

The white sections on the back of this man almost appear to be the wind blowing the leaves off the ground as he rakes. Asadi has an amazing ability to capture nature in all of his pieces with optical illusions.

9. Light and Shadows

Asadi creates an intense level of detail with this piece. It is like he is trying to create the circulatory system of the person in the piece rather than make a portrait of them.
