Many artists have used pencils to create works of art – but Dalton Ghetti creates miniature masterpieces on the tips of pencils.
Because in his eyes, small is beautiful, Dalton’s idea is to bring people’s attention to small things.
So, as a challenge to himself and because of his interest in small living things, like plants (moss) and insects (spiders and ants), he decided to create the smallest possible carvings that he could see with his naked eyes.
One day, he picked up a working pencil and started carving it…and what he has created is truly unique, original, and outstanding works of art.
Most of the pencils he uses are found on the streets and sidewalks. His work is a recycling process. He turns discarded objects into art, and he makes every part of the pencil count.
The whole process is a labor of love and most of his art takes months or sometimes years to complete a sculpture…the end result is both surreal and sensational.
