Inspiration in a Box

  1. 1. Jason DAquino is a miniaturist. He creates his artworkon an incredibly small scale, many works not exceedingone inch by one inch in dimension. DAquino chooses towork on found surfaces such as strike-on-frontmatchbooks, 18th century animal-skin vellum, andantique ledger pages. The search for these found"canvases" has led him to strange corners of the worldand to some unique treasures. He recently unearthed ahand-quilled, illustrated whaling manuscript from St.Petersburg Russia, which made its way to Christiesauction house in New York City.Jason DAquino es un miniaturista.
