Seen from afar, works by Turkish artist Çağatay Odabaş posters appear on a large scale, but as the onlookers approach them more closely, he discovers that they are actually hundreds of thousands of small, hand-drawn circles.
Odabaş, 37, says his art is heavily influenced by his two favorite activities that grow in the 1980s and 1990s – playing with LEGO pieces and watching movies. He begins by choosing movie images to recreate his collection of thousands of movies, which he considers his research library. It is then divided into several parts, each by mapping with small circles, which are assigned a particular code, to serve during the dyeing process. So, as a complicated but fascinating LEGO model, it puts all the pieces together to create these ultra-realistic pointilism masterpieces.
