Art Done with Salt (Video)

Bashir Sultani creates art using a salt shaker, I was amazed when I first saw this video, he has done some beautiful portraits, I chose the one he did of Albert Einstein, but he has done a lot more.

From You Tube:
• Real Time – 40 min.
• I reuse the same salt all the time
• Tools: 1-2 full shaker of any fine salt + piece of sharp paper + IPhone4 + iMovie
• Patience

    Amazing! What a waste to wipe it all away. I wonder if you could spray it with something to keep it as a permanent piece of artwork? Thanks Mags. Cheers, Mal.

      Hi Mal,
      It does seem a shame to wipe it away, you probably could spray something on them, but it seems he just enjoys doing the art, and it is all on record. 🙂

    That has to be a case of a modern day artist that deserves recognition in the vein of the old masters , superb

    Man! What talent! What does he use the IPhone for, I wonder – or was that just thrown in for fun?

      Hi souldipper,
      I also could not work out what the IPhone was for. 🙂
      I searched his web site before I did the post, but I couldn’t find anymore information. 🙂

    Now that is fabulous – and perfect for one of my Monday’s in the future. Hopefully I will remember to credit you! … and Cheers to human creativity!

  12. Wow! It’s a bit like the ephemeral artwork done with coloured sand in the street. How can you bear to just sweep it away? It’s fascinating to watch the construction of the portrait, but heart-wrenching to see it wiped away.

  13. I had to show this to my husband – he works at a salt plant. I told him it was something he might want to do on his breaks. 🙂
