Danny Cortes is a talented miniature model maker and has been recognized for his work capturing the essence of New York City. Specifically, he accurately depicts moments of hip-hop culture and also works on custom requests by stars of the industry and professional athletes.

His latest work is the ‘Landmark’ which is hosted by Gotham and curated by Kate Storch. It was unveiled in New York City’s East Village and is part of a larger group show. It tells a ‘tale of two cities’ — one of which features iconic vignette images that are produced to scale. The other are miniature depictions of Manhattan to form a deeper connection with the piece and preserve special moments.
