I was thinking last night about a remarkable artist I first read about in The Blinking City, Luigi Prina. I posted about him before but his work never ceases to amaze me. Mr. Prina has been an architect for over 50 years but his model building is a real combination of inspired art and fantasy. He’s been building flying models from paper and balsa wood since he was very young shows his amazing and artistic genius.
Many look like images from Leonardo DaVinci’s workshop and are beautiful to look at, much less to see fly.
Have a look at the article (I’ve reprinted some of the images below) and watch the short video of this remarkable Maker of dreams. The Blinking City has a load of other great articles very worth reading.
