About the micro artist:
Hasan Kale is a world-renowned micro artist master. Involved in painting since his early childhood, he began his career by drawing miniatures in Istanbul. One of Türkiye’s most famous and talented artists, Kale uses his miniature drawing talents for his paintings and tries to interpret miniature art with a contemporary eye.

He paints on things we see, are exposed to, or ignored in our daily lives, like rice grain, a nail, a silk cocoon, a needle, and a butterfly wing. By drawing and painting on micro-objects with exquisite detail, Kale opens a new window and perspective that builds up a new language in the art world.
