The Ufa-based artist uses an X-ACTO knife to carve miniature renderings of various characters from pop culture, buildings, statues, and everyday objects. It is a delicate process because the success of the artwork depends on how much pressure the lead can withstand. Therefore, mistakes are inevitable.

For the artist, carving miniature renderings is like a meditation and a challenge at the same time. The most difficult task is to make a micro sculpture and not to break it. These sculptures are fragile and tiny, and that excites the artist the most. The artist likes to pay attention to the details and bring each sculpture to perfection.

Fidai was born into a family of artists so it’s quite natural that he became an artist himself. His artistic journey started around 5 years ago and since then, he has continued to surprise us with his carving skills.
