Forget about galleries, museums, and paintings. Next time you want to experience art, go to the nearest grocery store and look for the incredibly tiny landscapes painted on food by Hasan Kale.
Kale is yet another artist who took us by surprise by finding a unique way to express himself. He has decided to give up one of the most traditional artist attributes - the canvas - in favour of a truly new and unexpected form. From walnut shells to eggs to onion peels, any food is sufficient as long as it is tiny.
Using a magnifying glass and the finest of brush strokes, the artist paints impossibly detailed landscapes of his native Istanbul. Every picture requires a great deal of patience and precision. We're also very impressed by the steadiness of Kale's hand as well as his creativity and resourcefulness. We will never look at chocolate the same way again.
