Kanat Nurtazin is a mixed media artist from Kazakhstan who has an impressive way of expressing his creativity. Instead of using paper and pen to make drawings like most artists, Nurtazin uses leaves and cutters as primary tools for his art.
This talented individual creates amazing leaf art that includes cutting shapes, pop culture characters, and even entire scenes on a single leaf. His works are highly detailed, but also ever-changing.
Thanks to the transparency of the leaf, the artwork can take different colors depending on its background and it can adopt a whole new meaning.
Due to the complexity of the work and the need for careful handling, Nurtazin can take up to six hours to finish a single piece. Still, seeing the finished product, it most certainly pays off.
