Salavat Fidai Recreates Van Gogh Paintings On Matchboxes And They’re Incredible

 

Russian artist Salavat Fidai is obsessed with things in miniature, and he has previously painted miniatures on pumpkin seeds and carved sculptures into the graphite tips of pencils. For this project, he's gone for something a little bit bigger, but not by much. One of Fidai's favorite painters is the legendary Vincent Van Gogh, so he decided to do a series where he recreated some of Van Gogh's famous works on matchboxes. The detail on these paintings is amazing. If you saw a close-up on one of these, out of context, you'd never guess that it was so tiny! Check them out!
