This adult bookshop isn’t some highway relic of the 90s. It’s miniature art.

There’s a new wave of urban miniature art out there, and I’m in love with all of it.

Ryan Thomas Monahan is one example of a miniaturist that takes his inspiration from urban grime. He designs and fabricates every aspect of his sculptures like his 90s adult bookstore, down to the last bit of graffiti. Then he shows them at art galleries, where his works go for several thousands of dollars.

Here he is, designing trash.

 

Take a second to marvel at the ultra-realism of the photos below, then check out his instagram account, which is full of tiny grit and grime.
