He also tries to replicate famous paintings onto unusual canvases like pumpkin seeds, sunflower, matchboxes and even rice. According to Salavat Fidai, "For me it’s like meditation and a challenge: to make a micro sculpture and not break it! It is indeed very fragile and tiny and that excites me the most. I use a craft knife and a magnifying glass to carve my sculptures". If you have a steady hand and creative mind, you can turn anything into a piece of art.
