update your mental image of pointillism

Maybe you are familiar with the term “pointillism”.  It is an original form of art that was created by artist George Seurat, consisting of many dots that are colored and formed to create a picture.

Artist Miguel Endara brings us up to date on this art form, and brings a new dimension to understanding the process. He has recently composed a portrait of his father composed of 3.2 million ink dots, and you can watch him work in an online video:

From my own research, it appears that Miguel’s vimeo offering went viral, and he has exploded on the art scene. He graduated from University of Miami in 2005, and has since worked as an Art Director and Web Developer and Designer.
