16-year-old Polish artist Joanna Wira?ka uses autumn’s fallen leaves as canvases to compose her beautifully colored masterpieces.

Once the leaves are collected, Joanna presses them in books to create the surface she needs for her incredible land and cityscapes. She starts by painting the entire leaf black and then adds blasts of color and details to achieve the bold artworks.

Clearly this young budding artist is inspired by bright lights and big cities, which you can see in many of her pieces.

About her work, Joanna says, “Art makes the world better and more beautiful. Try to find real art everywhere and let it inspire you.”
