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.
Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte (Un dimanche après-midi à l’Ile de la Grande Jatte), Georges Seurat, 1884-1886.
(If you haven’t seen this in person yet, visit the Art Institute of Chicago)
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:

Endara is a web design and self-proclaimed “stipple enthusiast”, hailing from Miami, Florida.
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.
In 2010 he was chosen for SoFi Magazine’s “33 Emerging Creative Minds You Need To Know”, and he has won several awards for his art and design by various publications.
