A Turkish Cityscape Incredibly Painted on Chocolate

You may have seen some of Hasan Kale’s micro paintings on butterflies and snail shells, but this year he seems to be focusing more on food. Like every small edible thing from fruit seed to peanut is painted on. The landscapes are depictions of his native Istanbul, from the Nusretiye Mosque illustrated on a half-peeled almond to another picturesque scene on a Milka square (which is my favorite). Kale keeps challenging himself to go beyond his limits and artistically conquer all tiny surfaces.
