Since April 20th, 2011, Japanese artist Tatsuya Tanaka has created and published a miniature artwork every single day. The aptly titled project, Miniature Calendar, combines photography, art direction, a continually growing collection of miniatures, and every day objects repurposed and reimagined into something entirely different yet instantly recognizable.
Tanaka has not only continued with the daily ritual, creating over 2,000 scenes in the process, but he has continued to evolve and elevate his craft, finding new ways to see the world around him and stay creative.
Born in Kumamoto in 1981. Currently an art director/miniature photographer based in Kagoshima. A website he has been updating daily since April 2011, “Miniature Calendar,” became popular among Internet users, being widely talked about online, as well as in other media including magazines and TV shows. He was responsible for the miniatures in the opening of the 2017 NHK serial TV novel “Hiyokko.”
Photo collections, “Miniature Life” and “Miniature Life 2” and “Small Wonders” have been published and are available in the commercial market.
