Gaspard Mitz

Box Stories: miniature art, grandiose destinies

Inspired by 1/87 scale model figurines, he created his first Box Story in December 2010 as a gift to his girlfriend. In his Box Stories, Gaspard Mitz sets up miniature characters in bigger-than-life scenarios. He shapes tailor-made destinies for his figurines, enjoys making references to the History of Art and tries to make people smile.

He has always been keen on jewel cases-objects, such as music boxes, cuckoo clocks and artist Joseph Cornell’s artworks. Being a great admirer of Japanese aestheticism, he sets up his scenes in sober, uncluttered atmospheres, and works with selected materials: wood, foam board and paper.
Box Stories are limited editions artworks of 12 pieces + 2 Artist Proofs. 

Gaspard Mitz was born in 1981. He lives and works in Paris, France.

After New-York, London and Bruxelles, Gaspard Mitz participates in the traveling exhibition Small Is Beautiful, Milan, May 9 to September 22.
