This Artist Uses A Surprising Tiny Canvas To Recreate Masterpieces


Salavat Fidai is no stranger to creating miniature masterpieces. The Russian artist has used the tips of pencils and tiny matchboxes to make gorgeous artworks. Now, he's using his talent on a new little canvas: seeds. 

He's masterfully recreated some of the most famous paintings in the world on tiny seeds. From Van Gogh's "Starry Night" to Edvard Munch "The Scream," Fidai shows that no painting is too intricate to be replicated on a grain. The amount of detail he's able to incorporate into his miniature paintings is mesmerizing.  

Fidai has experimented with a few different kinds of seeds, but pumpkin seems to be the favorite.
