I Was Impressed By The Dioramas… But When I Found Out How He Makes Them I Was Blown Away.
Some art forms never die but rather evolve over time and go so far as to reflect the times in which we live. TALWST has put a new twist on the delicate and meticulous work of the diorama, a medium that he has shrunk into something that can fit into your pocket.
Set in reclaimed antique ring boxes, TALWST creates painstakingly intricate and colorful scenes with messages that are clearly intended to start a dialogue. Although set within a vintage setting, the Toronto-based artist has gained the incredible ability to transport the viewers into another world.
It is unknown how long it takes TALWST to work on each piece. Given the quality of his work, one cannot help but assume it requires patience for his depictions to come to life. It is a testament to the saying, “the best things come in small packages.”
