Bonsai Tree Houses by Takanori Aiba

Japanese fashion magazine POPYE maze illustrator Takanori Aiba merge the design of physical space and the drawing of labyrinths into these incredibly detailed tiny worlds using craft paper, plastic, plaster, acrylic resin, paint and other materials.

"All my works are created trough my extraordinary fantastic and sometimes even chemical imaginations. However, they do not like pipe dreams. In fact people believe that they are real buildings and spaces because I depict not only the outline but also all of elaborate details in each works."

"I create image of the side, back, and even the inside of the buildings. My eyes circle around, and sometimes intentionally wander between buildings in the space."

"My source of creations are my early experience of bonsai making and maze illustration. These works make use of an aerial perspective, which like the diagram for a maze shows the whole from above(the macro View) while including minute details (the micro view)."
