Inspired by a caterpillar making holes in a leaf by eating it, the artist Lorenzo M. duran decided to cut out leaves the same way other artists do with paper. He washes, dries and presses the leaves before sketching out complicated patterns to apply to each one. He then uses a surgical scalpel to cut out the leaf and has developed his own technique after going through a long process of trial and error. This new form of art was, for him, the opportunity to combine his true passions: art and nature!
