Great art hidden in small details is waiting for you at Antalya Aquarium… Antalya Aquarium continues to open its doors to international art activities. A caravan in the eye of a needle, a fox on a grape seed, a sailboat on a rice grain! The works of world famous master of microminiatures Nikolai Syadristy will be exhibited at Antalya Aquarium during six months, starting from September 12. Microminiatures are ultra minified, small-scale exact equivalents of real objects, compositions, portraits of people and bas-reliefs. Microminiatures, whose size ranges from 3 mm to 5 mm, can be seen only with the help of a microscope. Nikolai Syadristy, who has created since 1956 a numerous number of works, many of which entered the Guinness Book of Records, describes his works as a combination of art, engineering and science. The artist, who has his own special technique, creates his works of art using very special tools and such materials as gold, platinum, sapphire etc. Nikolai Syadristy, who thinks that his art is “the art of the 21st century”, states that while creating his works, which are generally completed within one and a half or two months, even heart beatings and breathing have importance. Handmade masterpieces of Nikolai Syadristy, which have already been exhibited in more than 100 cities of the world from Europe to America and from China to Australia, have aroused great interest and have been highly praised by important public officials and artists from all over the world. This very special exhibition at Antalya Aquarium is waiting for those who want to see a signature written on a hair
