I wouldn’t mind spending a day or two inside the papercut dioramas by Mar Cerdà. I would get cozy in that paper sofa, serve myself a teeny tiny pie and maybe water the plants in the little greenhouse. And just look at those little movie inspired scenes of Romeo & Juliet and The Royal Tenenbaums. Absolutely gorgeous!
Based in Barcelona, Mar Cerdà’s little dioramas are displayed in galleries all over the world. Her main materials are watercolor paint and paper, which she also uses for children’s book illustrations she creates for various publishing houses. You can find many more of her wonderful work on her website.
A selection Mar’s dioramas is currently available in her online shop!
