Artist transforms tiny ring boxes into stunning mini dioramas
A Trinidad-Canadian artist named Talwst has perfected something that I'm willing to bet no one has ever done before, turn vintage ring boxes into tiny diorama gems. Despite the limited space of these small ring boxes, the artist manages to packs tons of detail in each piece.
The themes of the ring boxes are also incredibly unique, ranging from pop culture references to beautiful recreations of nature and history. Talwst began making these innovative renderings seven years ago when a street vendor handed the artist a ring box and encouraged him to create something special out of it.
Talwst said of his art, "I like to capture memories and fleeting moments. They feel all the more moving because of their fugitive nature." The artist collects these ring boxes by looking for them online or in local markets.
