Argentinean Artist Paints Without Paintbrush

Posted: Updated:

You won't believe your eyes when you see how an Argentinean painter makes his masterpieces.

Leandro Granato's untraditional painting mechanisms have made him a star in the Buenos Aires art scene. And he doesn't even need to pick up a paint brush.

Instead, Granato snorts paint through his nose cavity and squirts it out from his eyes onto a canvas, his method brings himself to tears as he weeps out watercolors for his paintings.

His artwork is in high demand, and goes for thousands of dollars per piece. In fact, each work of art is accompanied by a video that captures Granato's tearful artistic process for validation.

He uses a special formula of watercolor paints that does not damage his eyes.

According to his personal biography, Leandro Granato was born in 1986. He worked in his grandfather's business during his adolescence, but his grandfather suddenly died of cancer. Art became his way to deal with his pain and suffering. He's been painting professionally now for 20 years.
