Artist Curtis Talwst Santiago on creating tiny 3D worlds inside of vintage jewelry boxes
There's something fascinating about seeing our world scaled down in miniature form. It's something that kids tap into early on with Polly Pockets, Micro Machines, Kinder Surprises and school dioramas.
Multidisciplinary artist Curtis Talwst Santiago was the kind of kid who was big into miniature things. Even now, as an adult, he hasn't been able to shake that feeling.
The Edmonton-born artist has become internationally known for creating intricate historical scenes inside of vintage jewelry boxes.
