Unique and without doubt talented Turkish artist Hasan Kale was born in 1960 in Turkey. Hasan makes awesome miniature, even micro drawings of beautiful landscapes, cityscapes, wildlife, historical characters, and not only. Hasan has been working in micro miniature since the 1980s, using the extraordinary canvas for his detailed mini-marvels – the wings of any taxidermied insect, lemon peel, pasta, snail shells, seeds, lump of sugar, grain of rice, even sharp plant spikes. And the skillful artist doesn’t need a wooden board on which to mix colors, he uses his finger as a palette. For 55-year-old artist miniaturist the main inspiration is his native city, that’s why we see colorful scenes of Istanbul on most of his art works.
