21 breathtaking scenes carved into fallen leaves

Omid Asadi is a 35-year-old artist living in Manchester, UK. The Iranian-born creative spent much of his early childhood drawing on fallen leaves around his home. The fond memory faded over the time, but after visiting an art exhibit in Manchester with his girlfriend, his passion was reawakened.


“I started to [wonder] why nobody paid attention to these beautiful leaves and trod on them – if they were called flowers we wouldn’t tread on them at all! I wanted to give the leaves another Life and make art from them. This was my first step to becoming an artist and my leaf cutting art led to a very successful way.”

Check out his breathtaking creations in the list below. I can’t stop staring!
