What if you had your world on your hands? Eddie Putera can make that happen for you, literally!! This amazing artist creates miniature dioramas with meticulous care that anyone would be convinced that his works are a shrunk piece of the real world. Eddie just needs few photographs or sketches of the place or things before creating its shrunk version.
“As much as people wanting to describe me as a professional photographer due to the fact that I pretty much earn my living taking photos, I’d rather regard myself as a person who expresses himself visually through the images he created.”, Eddie says in his blog
Eddie Putera is also a professional photographer but doesn’t like himself to be constrained inside photography. He explores the depth of being an artist in a broad way. And it is that inner determination inside him that helped him explore the world of miniature dioramas and made him the master of that art, which he is today.
“Sometimes we forget that we already have enough in our lives. We keep on wanting what we don’t have and lead a life that is so miserable and sad.”, Eddie wrote on his blog
He is also a good writer. Eddie’s personal blog is very interesting to read. He has written only a few posts, but each one of them is worth reading. Eddie writes small anecdotes combined with his own personal philosophy, which is very enlightening. Also, he has a witty sense of humour. Eddies Instagram posts are famous also for their descriptions. The hilarious descriptions add more colour to his already stunning works.
“I never imagined doing this when I was a kid, if I could, I would have just done this for a living.”, eddie wrote on his facebook page.
Eddie’s main tools are paint brush and tweezers. Each of his dioramas is 64 times smaller than the original size of the object. Eddie recreates garages, sceneries, villages, towns or any object that seems worthy enough to be made into art. Mostly, his creations are based on his own childhood memories and photographs, and he also does commisioned work.
