If you think finger painting is mere child's play, think again. This artist's intricate masterpieces prove creativity is always in the palm of your hands.
YouTube user Dedos Lúdicos begins a new work by spreading and blending different colors across a blank white tile. While it may not seem like much at first, every sweep of his finger — no matter how small — adds an important element. With each additional layer, the tile transforms from a shapeless mixture of hues into a sophisticated tropical landscape.
Set to electronic music, all of Lúdicos' videos show the Portuguese artist whizzing through his process. Even when sped up and compressed for time, the natural deftness of his fine motor skills is something to envy.
Though he does about 90 percent of the work with just his hands, Lúdicos also uses a rag and toothpick to wipe away excess paint or make extra fine marks.
