Clever Combinations of Illustrations and Wood Carvings Create Extraordinary Miniature Cities

Miniature Cities

Through the use of intricate illustrations and sculptural carvings, artist Luke O’Sullivan has created a collection of mesmerising urban landscapes. Each piece of his work features recognisable architectural styles, such as a cluster of notable buildings in a hustling city, while also presenting more surreal depictions of subterranean networks below.

Much like a diorama display, the sculptures protrude to create 3D visuals, and the blend between realistic and surreal helps to create a majestic style.

The newest addition to this collection, Cool Shelter, uses screen printed drawings and wooden structures to build a brilliant labyrinth-like cityscape packed with various twists and turns.

O’Sullivan aims to create artwork that explores the idea of both the underworld and the world above, and the relationship shared between each one, which he achieves through a combination of three-dimensional and two-dimensional environments.

His work is inspired by many, but O’Sullivan mentions dystopian sci-fi genres and the early animations of video game publisher Nintendo as direct influences for this project.
