Urban Miniature Cities So Detailed You’ll Need A Magnifying Glass

Joshua Smith, a miniaturist and former stencil artist based in South Australia, constructs tiny, intricate worlds for a living.

Urban Miniature Cities

Smith works on a scale of 1:20, and his pieces are full of details that look tiny even on a scale of 1:1. He primarily uses MDF, cardboard, and plastic for the framing and base. Layers of paint and chalk pastels give the architecture its realistic feel prior to wiring and lighting.
