Mini Sculptures of Los Angeles Capture the Gritty Personality of City Neighborhoods



Creatives are often influenced by the world around them, especially city dwellers. Artist Sergio Jauregui is inspired by his neighborhood in Los Angeles and pays homage to it through impressive and mini sculptures. His miniature models feature the trappings of the metropolis. From the hole-in-the-wall liquor store to newspaper vending machines. Each piece looks like it belongs in an urban area, as these elements appear well-loved.

With their small stature, it can be hard to determine what the miniature city models are made of. Jauregui does an excellent job of disguising his materials.

He uses an array of supplies to craft the exquisite scenes, from plastic tubing to wiring to paper chipboard.

And he’ll often disassemble electronics in order to find new components for buildings. In working with these eclectic materials, the goal is the same, to produce pieces that inspire us to not just look. But to really see the places in which we live.

Jauregui is new to this type of model making and his background isn’t in art. Before creating his handheld sculptures, he worked on elevators.
