NFT STARS Presents Famous Sculptor-Miniaturist Salavat Fidai Whose Art Fits on the Tip of a Pencil

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, August 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The NFT marketplace NFT STARS demonstrates that the NFT world welcomes all forms of art with its presentation of the artwork titled "Inside My Head". This piece was created by the internationally famous sculptor-miniaturist - Salavat Fidai. The artwork shows the viewers every little detail of the painstaking process of creating sculptures on the tip of a pencil. The auction is scheduled for the 23rd of August. The event starts at 10:00 UTC with a 2 ETH starting bid and will last for 24 hours.

From a Piece of Graphite to a Masterpiece

Salavat Fidai is a modern artist and sculptor from Russia who became known worldwide for his micro-sculptures on the tip of a pencil. Limited to 2mm or 5mm of space (depending on the pencil), Salavat manages to create any form he is able to imagine. Over the years, he has learned to combine fragments from slates of different colors and paint graphite. His unique micro-sculptures have been displayed at exhibitions around the world. The artist has worked on joint projects with HBO (Game of Thrones), 20th Century FOX, Universal, Warner Bros., Marvel, Disney and a ton of other creative companies.

The process of creating one micro-sculpture can take anywhere from a couple of days to a month. Working on ‘The Iron Throne’ from Game of Thrones, Salavat spent 4 weeks sharpening swords and bringing the sculpture to perfection. Prior to the first stroke on the pencil, Salavat walks through the whole process in his head. When the 3D model is ready in his mind, he begins to create it in real life. This exact process of creating micro-sculptures is demonstrated in the artwork "Inside My Head".

"Inside My Head" is a compilation of more than 50 timelapse videos of Salavat working on his sculptures. Each video was shot through the eyepiece of a microscope that he regularly uses in his work. The videos are placed together on 3D cubes in an animated matrix.

NFT art is yet another way for Salavat to express himself and explore his imagination. Every digital artwork presented by the sculptor is a combination of different art forms - sculptures, animation, music. The artwork "Inside My Head" goes live on the NFT STARS marketplace on 23rd August at 10:00 UTC, at a starting price of 2 ETH.
