TALWST is an artist based in Toronto, Canada, who has created a series of ring box dioramas. Although such miniature art has been seen before, the fact that the artist focuses on current events and pop culture makes them stand out all the more. Full of incredible detail, the ring box dioramas not only boast incredible backdrops, but also patterns on the clothing and more.

From Michael Brown and Eric Garner’s deaths to more surreal scenarios, there are many reason to pay close attention to the scenes depicted in each ring box diorama. In addition to the messages being relayed, the work itself proves a beneficial pastime for the artist. TALWST explains, "The work’s small scale allows me the opportunity for a very particular kind of meditation."
