“5 years ago, I have started my project ‘100 methods of drawing’, and leaf-cutting art is one of my favorite,” this amazing artist shares. Kanat Nurtazin continues: “Leaf’s life is fleeting so as our lives and I am giving a second life to them to discover an untold story. I simply imagine a bright moment that I want to share with my audience. I draw it on the leaf and cut with a razor. The most important thing is to find the best suitable place to catch with my camera at the right time and right angle.” As the artist has mentioned he had started the ‘100 methods of drawing’, an incredible project where he draws such charismatic scenes and creates lovable characters on surfaces traditionally never intended for any kind of art! Kanat turns to gold everything he touches. Using apples and other fruits as canvas, leaves, newspapers and geographic maps to start his big portraits, solid wood and much more. There are 100 ways to draw and who knows what is coming next. So make sure to follow this brilliant man on Instagram, he has less than 10k followers and we know he deserves 100 times more. Good luck brilliant sir.
