Art in any form is bound to be beautiful. From paintings to murals to statues, every piece of art has its own unique charm and appeal. One such creative and inspiring art is known as ‘leaf design’. A leaf design refers to the various shapes and designs that can be created on leaves. The process requires a bunch of sharp tools that can be used to cut through the center of the leaf and carefully cutting out a certain portion, in order for a design to stay behind. For example:-To create a heart shape, you can cut out a basic heart shape from the center of the leaf, there by giving the illusion of the leaf having a heart.
One such talented artist called Lorenzo Manuel Durán, creates some of the most awe-inspiring designs on leaves. One look at his collection and you will wonder as to how he manages to incorporate such details with such clarity into his leaf designs. From animals abstract art, he seems to have covered it all.
Although fresh leaves are preferred, dry leaves can also be used. If you are a beginner then first make a stencil of the design and then place it on the leaf and cut around it carefully.
I’m sure after reading about the art and seeing Lorenzo’s beautiful designs, the artist in you is raring to grab a bunch of leaves and start making your own leaf designs to impress your family and friends!
