Argentine painter Leandro Granato is making a splash in the art world through a new painting technique involving snorting paint up through his nose cavity and squirting it out from his eyes onto a canvas.
Proving to have a real eye for art, the Buenos Aires based painter literally brings himself to tears as he weeps out watercolors for his paintings that attract eye-watering price tags of thousands of dollars in art markets.
Granato discovered the painting technique shortly after his grandfather died and opened up his own studio at 20 years of age due to growing demand for his unique eye painting.
Each of the unique works of art are accompanied by a video that captures Granato's tearful artistic process with each painting taking between 15 minutes to one month to complete and consisting of roughly 800 ml of watercolor paint.
The Argentine painter uses a special formula of watercolor paints the does not damage his eyes.
