Toothpick Pointilism Artworks by JoKa


Can you draw something out of tiny dots? A Philadelphia-based artist has been making rather breathtaking surreal artworks using paint and toothpicks. Yes, just toothpicks. No paintbrushes were used to make the masterpieces you are about to see. Curious? Take a look at some of these hyper-pointilism artworks after the jump!

In the past, we have featured many interesting artworks done in pointilism style, a technique where, as the name suggests, dots are utilized in patterns to create an image. An interesting addition to this roster of amazing pointilism artworks are the masterpieces of Philadelphia artist JoKa, laboriously painted using ordinary toothpicks.

Utilizing a process called hyper-pointilism (which involves super tiny dots, as suggested by the very fine point of a toothpick), JoKa creates jaw-dropping artworks that are both intricate and complex. However, his works are best lauded for their bright, vivid colors and surreal quality. Below are some of his recent works which will be showcased in an exhibit at WWA Gallery entitled The Noise in the Basement:
