Takanori Aiba (1953- present) is a Japanese maze illustrator, architect, and a sculptor. His sculptures are actually a mixture of his illustration and architecture background. He generally makes use of windmills, lighthouses, boats, cars, statues, cliffs, and flags in his miniature cities. The Bonsai Series might be one of his most famous works as he develops his sculpture around a bonsai tree.
Here are Aiba’s bonsai sculptures an some other works from the Tokyo Good Idea website.
