Tomic Dino é uma artista Norueguês super talentoso e que agora decidiu expandir seus horizontes artísticos, usando o sal de mesa (Sim, aquele mesmo que você usa em sua casa) para fazer seus desenhos.

A artista define essa busca por novas formas de arte da seguinte forma:

“Experimentar novas técnicas e expandir seu campo artístico, passando de um meio para outro e levando novos conhecimentos de cada peça que você fez.” Então você constrói uma versatilidade de suas habilidades artísticas, ou domínio de um ou vários tópicos. Se você tem determinação, vai sentir o progresso e eventualmente terá êxito”.

#1. A maior mandala feita de sal do mundo

Large Salt Mandala Today i have finished my largest salt mandala project yet. I worked non stop for the last 3 days to finish it – about 25 hours of work . This project has been done for the university HSN Notodden where i took my education 7 years ago. The doors to the school are open so that everyone can go in and out to check it out =D This mandala will be there the next 2 weeks , and than i will destroy it =) I cant help but think – is this maybe the worlds largest salt mandala ever created ? ( i know people are doing them with sand/ and colored powder – but i have never seen any large once with salt =) The whole process was live streamed on my youtube channel – so thank you all for hanging out with me =) It was amazing talking to all the people, and tiring at the same time – at one point i had the live stream on , a time lapse camera on , a 360 camera in the middle on , newspaper interview – a tv camera and a lot of bystanders at the same time =D talk about multitasking haha =D Now my neck and brain need a break. In 6 days i will start another large mandala almost as big as this one in the middle of the town center =)

#2. Cavalo feito de sal

Horse made with SALT Im continuing my salt experimentation – and it really seems that you can do anything with salt – with some practice ( and many many years with art experience/ knowledge in the background hehe ) Lately i have been doing these gigantic salt mandalas on public places – was good to work alone in peace and quiet on a smaller scale again =) Like always i have filmed the whole process and will edit the video soon =) I know im writing always so much on most of my posts and i know not everyone is reading it ( those are the people who normally ask a question – wile the detailed answer is already provided in the description ) so lets see how many of you are reading what i write! Just for fun , write in the comment section your favorite vegetable haha ( that should really confuse all the non description readers ) XD

#3. Tigre feito de sal

#4. Uma rosa

#5. E se você é um fã de Game of Thrones, ai esta um retrato de Daenerys

Daenerys Salt portrait The whole portrait here was done using nothing else but normal kitchen salt! =) This is the very first time im doing a portrait with salt ( this is my third salt creation -did two large mandalas last week ) Really interesting and fun medium to work with . It really resembles airbrushing ( i was working with airbrush about 5 years ago ) so it was really not that hard to get into the salt =D After i crafted a few tools to help me distribute salt , things where way easier to work with =D I also have a video from start to finish of this project that i will share with you soon =) As wee all know GoT is starting again in a few days – and the internet will be flooded with fan made artwork – ( like every year ) so let me be one of the first once this year =D

#6. Coração de sal

Inverted Salt heart The picture you see here is the “normal“ not inverted version of an heart done entirely with regular kitchen salt on a black carpet if you look at my profile and see the second post you can see the inverted version . The reverse colors effect shows what the original picture really is =) If you dont believe me find an app/ program and invert the image yourself and see what happens =) The main idea of this project will be visible in the video , once i finish editing it =) For the people complaining that i waste salt : for all the projects i have done until now i have used about 20 kg of salt ( and yes i reuse it as much as i can ) while we here in Norway use 238.000 tons of salt per year to defrost the roads ( i know its not the same fine processed salt i use / but salt nonetheless ) – im trying to say there is no shortage of salt in the world , and im not trying to wasting it – so try not the be a hater =)

Inverted SALT eye The picture you see here is the “normal“ not inverted version of an eye done entirely with regular kitchen salt on a black carpet if you look at my profile and see the second post you can see the inverted version . The reverse colors effect shows what the original picture really is =) If you dont believe me find an app/ program and invert the image yourself and see what happens =) Its hard to be the first at something , but im very very sure that no one has ever done something like this before =D Im all about pushing , testing and experimenting with new things – wanted to give it a go and see what i could do if i would combine the two techniques i practice =) The eye you might also recognize , its my own eye – and i used it for a art competition once few years back ( it was drawing hundreds of times buy some of the most incredible artist ) Im gonna take some more time and try to do a cool video where i switch from filming regularly to inverted while i work so that you can see the magic happen right in front of you =)
