You might not see leaves as a suitable canvas for creating an aesthetic masterpiece, but it is the challenge that the smooth green surface presents that makes foliage art spectacular.

There is a large amount of skill required to be able to etch clean figures and portraits on a leaf. It requires a steady hand, patience and an abundance of creative spirit. For instance, Lorenzo Duran is known for his creative decision that involves using leaves as his canvas for his works. The result is highly intricate images depicting silhouettes of natural terrains and wildlife. 

Foliage art designs can be used to spark and environmentally friendly activist movement or to draw gasps out of unsuspecting viewers. The beauty is seeing natural elements being highlighted instead of ignored.
