Obsessively Detailed Sculptures Made Out of Aluminum Foil by Artist Toshihiko Mitsuya

toshihikomitsuya01

When I look at the incredible work of artist Toshihiko Mitsuya I can’t help but be reminded of that kid with no money who made action figures out of twist ties. Mitsuya’s sculptures are created out of aluminum foil, not twist ties, but there’s the same sense of child-like wonder in his work. Lots of images below.
