Artist ‘Pays’ Ants In Sugar To Help Finish Her Animal Paintings
Iantha Naicker is an artist who gets a little help finishing her works from someone you would never expect – ants. She uses tiny amounts of sugar to lure them onto her drawings and the ants form intricate shapes, that complete them.
The artist says she thinks ants are interesting and fascinating insects but capturing them on camera is not as easy as you think: “It gets tricky because they move around quickly and I have to record as fast as I can,” says Iantha. It can take numerous attempts to capture the perfect shot but the end result is worth it.
