Salt Drawings Become Complete When Inverted

Published 4 years ago

It’s not the first time we’ve covered Croatian artist Dino Tomic’s work. He started off as a tattoo artist in Norway, but now he’s experimenting more and more with new forms and materials, the latest being kitchen salt.

Sounds simple enough, right? But there’s a twist. He carefully arranges the grains of salt on the black canvas in such a way that when he inverts the colors (when he’s editing the photos afterward) an even more impressive image is revealed. “Testing out new techniques and expanding your artistic field… that’s how you build character and versatility,” said the artist to Bored Panda.

Pushing a medium to new heights, and backing it up with my knowledge of past projects speeds up the process. Overcoming past set boundaries and raising the bar higher is of utmost importance for me.
