My name is Frederic Ughetto and I am a French artist working with the stippling technique.

I wanted to share with you some of the work I made over the last couple of years. They are composed of millions of 0,10mm dots. Some are personal, and others are commissions and can be seen on my Instagram.

My journey as an artist started a while ago. I've been drawing since I was a kid, so art studies were kind of an obvious choice. I spent 8 years in art schools after high school and university where I graduated with a master's degree in visual communication. Drawing was always something that gave me the possibility to relax and get into my own world, away from the problems of everyday life.

The amount of time it takes to create one piece of artwork really depends on the size and complexity of the work. Napoleon, for example, took me 6 months to make, working on it for 4 to 5 hours almost every day. But for a smaller one, it takes around 4 to 20 hours, I would say.

The most challenging part of the creative process for me is finding the subject that I will enjoy doing. While I love having commissioned work, sometimes the subject is not that interesting or challenging, so the focus and enjoyment might not be the same compared to what really interests me.

I love pointillism because it kind of reflects my personality. You need to be patient and focused and perhaps a bit weird to enjoy making dots for hours. Also, the fact that you cannot really afford to make any mistakes because you cannot erase them, you would have to start over. So that level of concentration that makes you actually forget everything else is thrilling for me.

Speaking about my plans for the future, I would love to reproduce the Sistine chapel. I also would love (but have a hard time starting it) to do a chronological timeline of world history, but that is a life's work, not sure I will ever be able to finish that.
