路牌、塗鴉、簷篷、騎樓……當你以為這是一幅 廟街唐樓 的照片時,就大錯特錯了。這是出自南澳模型藝術家 Joshua Smith 巧手的微型模型!大至大家熟悉的唐樓窗戶,小至一份報紙,一個煙盒,都鉅細無遺地展現出來。如此精緻的製作,使整棟唐樓栩栩如生。這棟「唐樓」將會於紐約的VOLTA Art Fair展出,現在,就讓我們帶大家一起認識一下這位優秀的藝術家和他的作品吧!

自學砌迷你模型 原為模版藝術家

Joshua Smith來自南澳,他的微型模型技術是自學的,而且由他開始設計微型城市風景到現在只有兩年而已!他當了一名模版藝術家十五年,其間他曾經營一間藝廊四年。藝廊在兩年前關閉後,他想嘗試向新方向發展,所以他便開始設計微型模型。兩年的時間,他愈做愈好,其作品也曾在倫敦、巴黎、柏林、紐約、悉尼和墨爾本展覽。

香港人熟悉的唐樓 「廟街23號」

因為「廟街23號」,Joshua Smith近日引得世界各地的關注,這個根據原址製造的1:20微型模型,其細緻度及至塵埃、垃圾、塗鴉,甚至是污垢。這項像真度極高的模型花了他三個月去完成,說的是每週工作六至七天,每日8-16小時!

模型還配上仿如光管色的燈,非常有真實感!

2 weeks ago I acheived my lifelong dream of having an exhibition in New York City. A dream I have always had ever since I started my art career all those years ago. Tonight is the game changer, I exhibit my work in the VOLTA Art fair in New York City, one of the biggest and best art fairs in the USA. This has been an incredibly surreal experience and has happened all so quickly yet has taken me 17 years of hard work to get to this point. I would not be at this point though without the support and encouragement by people such as my parents, Kab 101 and Sooz, Rah, Yasmin, Chris Tamm, Andrew & Jacinta, Ali & Garth, Daniela, Summa, Tsunami, Thanh, Jack, Sair, Catherine, Matt, Tom Buchanan, Blake & Ellen, Rae and so many others. To you all I say thankyou. To everyone I say thankyou for your support as I continue to move forward making all things miniature. My work will be on display at @murielguepingallery at the VOLTA Art fair, Pier 90 in Manhattan from March 1-5. Unfortunately I cannot be there in person as much as I wanted to be but please check it out if you are in the area. Photo credit: Andrew Beveridge/ASB creative @asbcreative_pro_photo

Joshua Smith 手工很細緻,舊窗框、晾衫、鐵閘鎖鏈等等,一一像真地造了出來!

Slowly but surely my Kowloon miniature is coming along. Some days it feels like there is not too much progress and so much left to do. Hoping to get the front and side done by Monday then tackle the interior. The final artwork will be on display at the VOLTA Art fair in NYC in March showing with Muriel Guipen gallery of Manhattan. Be sure to check it out if you are in the area! #miniature #sculpture #urbandecay #kowloon #hongkong #HK #grime #weathering #scalemodel #diorama #dailymini #scratchbuilt #dollhouse #roombox #iknowjoshuasmith #joshuasmithminiatures #nyc #newyork #voltaartfair #manhattan #beautyofdecay

愛以舊區舊物作題材Joshua Smith的作品靈感多來自一些衰落和受到忽視的建築物和社區,而他選擇的建築物,多是面臨清拆的,又或是準備重建的社區。

Snapshot by Daniel Purvis @daniel.purvis of the Castle Byers instillation I created with Steve Glass, Jack Franceschini @jackfran.art and Matt Healey for The Upside Down, A Stranger Things Exhibition. Was a shame to pull this down after the exhibition but glad we captured it in all its glory. #strangerthings #strangerthingsfanart #theupsidedown #castlebyers #eggos #willbyers
