The Best Things Come in Small Packages

I did a post on book binding before, Evan Lorenzen took interest in the esthetic and based his new project of making tiny books. in an interview with BuzzFeed Lorenzen states that he started making tiny books because he got frustrated with the time it took him to create larger detailed ones.  Lorenzo says that his ” whole goal has been to get as small as [he] can without the use of any magnifying instrument in the making process”.

However, artist Lorraine Loots needs to use a magnifying glass to make her paintings. Her project 365 Paintings for Ants began after she left her study of business course for artist, but still wanted to paint.

At first she drew whatever she wanted, but over time people started to pitch in ideas.  The pieces are made on a 10x10cm square of paper. It can take between three to seven hours. The title of each painting is that of the day it was made, making every one unique. Now loots has  new project entitled Potluck 100: Paintings for Ants.

This video goes further into the process.

Now check out some of her work.

 

 

 

The last artist I will be talking about is Hasan Kale, the man behind Insane Micro Paintings. he makes paintings on arrange of things that can be found around someone’s house. However these paintings are super small. Of all the artist I’m talking about in this post, he left me speechless. Seriously his work is insane.
