Artist Joe Fig created small-scale reproductions of the studios of well-known artists such as Ryan McGinness, Chuck Close, and Jackson Pollock, motivated by the desire to understand each space's inhabitants and their work.
The idea of possibly being able to comprehend someone better by recreating their space on a small scale is fascinating, as is the varing set-up of the studios — from obsessively organized to colorful chaos. Fig's project culminated in a book, Inside the Painter's Studio, which includes photographs of his sculptures as well as interviews with some of the artists. View more of the tiny studios and read about the artist's work on his website.
