Where many artists focus on showcasing their artwork through huge paintings and drawings, Mesut Kul, a Turkey based artist seems to have taken the opposite approach. The creative artist is known for drawing micro paintings on variety of objects including tiny seeds and feathers. Besides that, he has displayed his artwork on butterfly wings, pocket watch, rice grain, cashew, noodles and even a hair which can be regarded as world’s smallest canvas.
The micro art painting artist did his primary schooling in Erzurum and then completed his secondary education in Bursa. In 2012, he was selected in the Faculty of Fine Arts Traditional Turkish Handicrafts Department at Atatürk University. He got familiar to micro art painting just a couple of years ago. The importance of innovations in art was explained to Mesut by a master painter which guided him this way. He told him that there are lot of artists who can draw on big canvasses but very few can do it on tiny objects. Thus, he got motivated by the idea that micro painting can become more memorable and appreciable.
One fascinating thing about micro painting from Mesut Kul is that all of these tiny drawings are made by him using his naked eyes and a brush only. However, one has to use a magnifying glass to see all the details of these beautiful paintings. Taking inspiration from everything around us, Mesut wants to create a universal language by means of his artwork.
