My name is Lorenzo M. Durán, I was born in Spain, in 1969. Although I had been drawing, painting, and sculpting little things since I was a kid, I decided to become a full-time artist when parenthood, unemployment, and midlife crisis visited me (at the same time!) in 2006, pushing me to think about what I had done with my professional life and what I would really want to do with it. Fortunately, I was given lots of time to think deeply about it all and decided to combine 2 of my true passions: Art and Nature.

First I started painting some oils, but all of a sudden I saw a caterpillar having lunch (a leaf) and the trace left behind its body suggested that I could cut my designs on tree leaves with a scalpel, just as many artists had been doing in paper cutting art. That leaf art idea became an obsession and from 2006-2008 I developed a detailed art technique to meet my goal. A couple of years later (2010-2011) my unique artwork called many people's attention, and all of a sudden my first pieces appeared in lots of media (Daily Mail, Huffington Post, BBC, El Mundo, etc.), BoredPada staff also published a couple of posts on my works of art (thanks!). My wife and I have raised our daughter (who’s now 10) working together in the creative field, and I'm thankful for those 3 things that pushed me to take this way.

From those first leaf cuttings, my work has evolved in several directions until now, but my passion for Nature and Art has remained through all the way. Here I post some of my first beautiful artworks and other cool patterns that were most recently finished.
