Art has no bounds. The more we explore the length and breadth of it, the more interesting it gets and to much extent bewildering. For example consider this picture of a bathing beagle. Although it looks like a nice photograph, the image has more than meets the eye. It is very very sweet.
The marvelous picture is actually a collection of colored sprinkles [used in bakery] put together painstakingly by Canadian artist Joel Brochu. It consists of 221,184 sprinkles which include colors like red, orange, green, blue, black, and white.
A layout of the original picture in the dotted format was procured from a computer program that made use of the above mentioned colors. Then each of the sprinkle was carefully placed using tweezers that “adhered to the board with the help of double sided tape and a thin layer of glue.” When complete, the picture was coated with clear acrylic resin. Estimate the time taken? Around 8 months!
“The artist said the work began as a university fine arts project on Pointillism – the technique of using tiny dots to create a painting.“
