For a project, Japanese artist Takanori Aiba created tree houses out of bonsai. Learn more after the break.
Bonsai is a form of Japanese art that deals with growing miniature trees in small containers. Growing bonsai trees is common among other countries such as China and Vietnam. The art of growing these trees may already be common but Japanese artist Takanori Aiba does something more. He has created small worlds out of the bonsai trees. The details are so intricately done that you would think small people live in there. See some photos of his bonsai tree houses below.
For more of his artwork, visit his official website. Information for this article was taken from This is Colossal.

Many among us live double lives -- a member of the labor force by day, a passionate go-getter by night. it's difficult to break into the art world when you need money -- so most of us keep our creative lives as hobbies. For the photographer, he can do a little bit of both simultaneously.
It shouldn't surprise you when works by Andy Warhol, Michelangelo, David Hockney, Salvador Dali, and more, are found in pieces of cinema such as in movie posters. After all, cinema is about art imitating life, and what better source to steal and recreate through great artists themselves?
The best artists are not the popular or the wealthy ones. Not all the time, and definitely not 'often'. It's the passionate artist, who's a hero of his or her own right. Japanese photographer Mii Yatogi breathes, lives, and sleeps analogue. Read our interview with her here at Lomography Magazine.
