The Turkish artist creates incredibly iconic works of art using cracked eggshells.
Were you trying to find the perfect piece of art for your home? Instead, it would be best to look no further than this creative Turkish artist. Süreyya Noyan uses cracked eggshells as a canvas to create recreations of famous works of art.
In her works, Noyan carefully opened an egg and removed the contents. Then she uses delicate brushes or drawing pens to draw in the empty shell.
From classic masterpieces like “Starry Night” by Vincent van Gogh – to modern pieces like “The Scream” by Edvard Munch, Turkish artist Süreyya Noyan uses cracked eggshells as a canvas to create detailed illustrations of art. It is a complex process as they first break them to remove the insides and then draw on the surface of the shell.
Süreyya Noyan’s work is impressive, and her pieces are almost identical to the masterpieces they are inspired by. They prove that works of art can be found in minor details if you know where to look.
Noyan recreates the works of other famous artists on eggshells. Even if you’re not interested in art, it’s worth clicking to see how much care goes into the details of these paintings. The in-progress shots are also pretty great.
This is undoubtedly a fun way to paint the world’s most famous masterpieces, especially for those who could be more skilled in painting or drawing. The results are equally impressive, as many renowned art works have been animated before our eyes.
Noyan’s pieces engage both because of their story and the way they tell it and prove that even a broken shell can have artistic merit. Although breaking an egg to paint its contents is not exactly the most environmentally friendly thing to do, this project draws our attention to the original role of eggshells in art. After freeing the egg of its contents, Noyan does not simply shed its shell; she uses it as a canvas to make art herself.
