My name is Raimundo. I do painting, installations and photography. I am here to take my miniatures practice to the next level.
My project is called the Fantastic and Magic World of ‘Miniatures’. I want to rescue this ancient form of art from mass production, to renew it as a form of art, and to bring back the craftsmanship and aesthetic values and tradition from this genre. My intention is to develop children’s imagination and sensitivity, and give adults the chance to feel like teenagers again, inviting them to dream in the contemplation of these objects of love. There are several different themes that I will explore.
I need your support to bring this project to life. Whatever support you can provide will help. You can even get your own handmade miniature. Thanks for your consideration and please share this project with family and friends.
How I Make Miniatures
Each miniature I make is a unique object. They are hand made using all sorts of materials, including industrial artifacts, ready-made and recycled materials found in public space. The ice of the penguin is made from broken glasses found in the street, the cake is made out of sponge, the grass is salvaged from the soccer field in the park next to my house.
Each part is carefully selected, then hand sculpted, painted, and worked in my studio in Brooklyn. The nose and ears of each little piggy is meticulously painted pink. Found grass and mirror are cleaned and treated to create small oasis for panda bears.
