Sergio Jauregui is not interested in “larger than life” – he instead finds inspiration in a rusty “paleta”/popsicle cart or an abandoned motel sign. “The city changes without us noticing. People leave a footprint on everything they touch. Something as miniscule as a fingerprint adds to an object’s character and appeal.” Jauregui shines a spotlight on these often overlooked objects by creating miniatures of them in meticulous, awe-inspiring detail.
Born in Guatemala, Jauregui immigrated to Los Angeles with his family when he was seven years old and has been creating art ever since he can remember. He formalized his art education by studying set and exhibit design at the Art Institute of Hollywood, where he further explored miniature model-making. Since then, he has been immersed in creating “that, but smaller.”
