Omid Asadi Transforms Fall Leaves Into Stunning Works Of Art

Iranian artist Omid Asadi transforms fall leaves into stunning works of art. To make his leaf cuts, Asadi first collects fall leaves that would otherwise be trampled, and then presses them. He then sketches complex patterns and uses a knife to cut the patterns in a meticulous process that takes between one week and two months to complete. “A slight slip of the hand could rip the surface and destroy hours of work,” says Asadi. One day on a walk with his wife, Elham Rafiei, he started thinking about leaves. He thought the leaves in his new town were beautiful, and worthy of celebration. After that decisive walk, Asadi began collaborating with his wife, who is proficient in the ancient art of Persian miniature painting, to create his first leaf cuts. The extraordinary nature of Asadi’s work is captured in a quote on his website: ‘Anyone can love a rose, but it takes a lot to love a leaf. It’s ordinary to love the beautiful but it’s beautiful to love the ordinary.’
