Artist Creates 30 Mini Plein Air Paintings In Altoids Tins

The artist can draw inspiration from mundane moments and create art on any given canvas, and size is never a limit. What about vintage Altoid tins? Say no more! Using small wood panels and a compact palette of paint, Remington Robinson paints mini plein air paintings that could fit in your pocket.

Originally from Chagrin Falls, Ohio, Robinson moved to Boulder, Colorado, in 2004, following his passion for painting mountains. During his awe-inspiring escapes to nature, or city wanders, he transfers breathtaking land and cityscapes into tiny boxes without losing any of their glory and intricacy.

“I saw someone else doing it, and gradually started painting smaller and smaller things until I just said, ‘why not?’ and started doing these. That was about 2.5-3 years ago,” the artist told Bored Panda. In a fairly short time, his mesmerizing travel diary in miniature gained 81k impressed followers on Instagram.

If you are as excited for Robinson’s artwork as we are, you can join him on a creative adventure for your daily dose of tiny yet beautiful art and inspiration.
