Tiny Miniature World of Food
Christopher Boffoli is a Seattle based artist that creates his own minature world using food and figurines which mimc everyday life. We spotted his workon MyModernMet and fell in love with his work – each photo is really intriguing and detailed.
Why did the artist start down this creative path? “The hand-painted figures that I work with are made for HO scale model train sets,” he tells us. “It is probably no coincidence that around age ten I had a large, elaborate model train layout that my father built for my brother and me. Everything about it was meticulously detailed. Especially with this train set, there was an infinite number of people, cars and buildings one could arrange on the landscape of a perfect little world.
“I suppose there is in some part a god-like feeling to having command of an entire world which you can rearrange at any capricious whim. And no matter how messy the real world can become, everything always looks clean and perfect from above in the world of the model train layout.”
