What’s impressing us this month: Omid Asadi
Check out these leaf cut outs. The pictures below are actual “art pieces” created by Omid. The only tools he uses are a craft knife and a needle which he gingerly applies to actual fallen leaves. Omid himself is 35 years old and from Iran. He started his work in 2012 but his fan-dom on Facebook is at less than 2000. We urge you all to check out his work on his website and his Facebook because they are quite impressive!
From his site:
[pull_quote_center]I started to think why nobody paid attention to these beautiful leaves and trod on them, because of their name – if they were called flowers we wouldn’t tread on them at all! I wanted to give the leaves another life and make art from them. This was my first step to becoming an artist and my leaf cutting art led to a very successful way. [/pull_quote_center]
What impresses us the most is that Omid takes such a simple everyday thing and creates beautiful pieces out of them. Our favorites include the Harry Potter piece, as well as the couple from Casablanca. We sometimes have to slow down appreciate the little things that people still do to bring beauty into the world.
