Hidden Inside the Walls (15 total)


These aren't your typical dollhouses. French artist Marc Giai-Miniet creates incredibly detailed miniature boxes featuring multi-level structures, split apart to give us a fascinating view of what's going on inside.

Cluttered yet still very organized, the series titled, "Les boîtes" (The Boxes), includes dark, messy scenes inside laboratories, factories, libraries, and offices.

Born in 1946 in Trappes, France, Marc Giai-Miniet studied at the l'Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts, a distinguished national school of Fine Arts in Paris, France. He is currently the Secretary of the Salon de Mai, a gallery founded in Paris with the purpose of encouraging and exhibiting younger abstract artists.
