Previously, the artist painted Istanbul’s landscapes on tiny canvases such as pumpkin seeds, butterfly wings, peanut husks, and grains of rice. Now he’s turned his sights – or his magnifying glass – towards M&Ms, banana chips, chocolate bars, quail eggs, and pretzel sticks.

Wow, what is this? When a couple went out for brunch with their young daughter at a local restaurant in northeast Calgary, they were astonished to see a ‘Well Behaved Kids’ discount of $5 on their final bill.
