Paper cut-outs seem to be in vogue these days. Artist Omid Asadi chose a very different medium to cut-up. Omid workds with fallen leaves and turns them into small pieces of biodegradable fine art. He uses a very sharp craft knife and a needle to achieve his goal of turning dried up old leaves into gallery pieces. He uses mainly maple leaves as they are plentiful in his area. Originally from Iran, he is now currently based in Manchester, United Kingdom.He said: “I believe that we look at many things everyday, but don’t SEE them. I always try to create pieces with a message, not just beautiful art. Some of these messages or ideas come from my world view, poems, stories, global problems and philosophy.”
