Trinidad born, now Canadian mixed media artist Talwst, has created miniature dioramas in ring boxes. Fine jewelry boxes serve as the basis for small scenes filled with almost microscopic human figures. According to the artist, the idea for this series came about when a street vendor in Paris gave him an old box from the ring and told him: “I would love to see what you can do with it.” Antique ring boxes, which he uses, as well as fine details in tiny dioramas, help the viewer pay attention to the story; “I want the viewer to open the box, and feel that he is in another world.”
