I don’t know if this is one of many trending japanese art styles, or sheer obsession for all things tiny in Japan. Regardless, Japanese artist Tanaka Tatsuya has been creating playful miniature scenes everyday since 2011 and his works of art is loved by people all over the world!

The idea came about when one of his Instagram followers suggested that he “create a miniature calendar everyday“. And so he started his 365 project using everyday objects – from broccoli, loaves of bread, to sushi, to mobile gadgets and even emoticons! Check out some of his latest work below. They are among my favourites as well.

For more of Tanaka Tatsuya check out his website miniature-calendar.com and his infinite-scrolling Instagram page. He has definitely brought creativity to a whole new level. Man…this guy is insane!!
