Gaspard Mitz

French artist Gaspard Mitz sets up miniature characters in bigger-than-life scenarios in his “Box Stories” collection.  Gaspard created his first “Box Story” in Dec 2010 as a gift to his girlfriend, inspired by 1/87 scale model figurines.  Self-taught, encouraged by enthusiastic feedback on his boxes, Gaspard has enjoyed diverting figurines from their original functions by shaping them a tailor-made destiny ever since.  Gaspard 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, Gaspard sets up his scenes in sober, uncluttered atmospheres, and works with selected materials: wood, polystyrene, foam sheets and paper.  Box Stories are limited-edition pieces handcrafted in Paris, exhibited in concept stores and galleries in France and abroad.
