Chris Toledo’s Wonderfully Realistic Miniatures

Artist Chris Toledo creates 1:12 scale models that are so realistic, it’s hard to believe they’re not full size. Only when a real-scale object is placed in the scenes does the magic of his work come to life.

MyModernMet has a short interview with Toledo, where he describes his love of the craft.

We love his dedication to this unique craft, hand styling the smallest detail, from floor tiles, to tiny frying pans, to fixtures and cabinets. Amazing work.


“Since I was a kid, I loved to create,” he tells My Modern Met, “from building little houses out of sticks and pebbles in my backyard to painting portraits of my friends and family.” His father was also an influence as a contractor and a woodworker who passed down a love of furniture-making and architecture.
