An incredibly talented artist from Turkey Hasan Kale pushes the boundaries of what can be achieved with paint by painting inconceivably tiny yet beautiful paintings on miniature things from a grain of rice to a tiny green pea.
Peanut husks, split almonds, banana chips, and beans are some of the many tiny canvases he uses to paint. He paints on inorganic objects as well, but the food canvases are more impressive because of their impermanent nature. And hey you can not see his works through naked eyes, you need a magnifying glass.
According to his Facebook, Kale has set himself the goal of painting a silhouette of Istanbul on a strand of hair. This is one world record we would love to see!
Here are some of his best works:
Pretty cool right?
