Artist Creates Tiny Detailed Paintings Inside Eggshells

Rebecca OConnell

Turkish artist Süreyya Noyan has chosen a very delicate medium for her artwork. By carefully cracking open eggs and cleaning out their insides, she creates tiny canvases to paint on.

On these minute, curved spaces, Noyan has recreated several masterpieces, including Vincent Van Gogh's The Starry Night and the frontage of St. Antuan Church in Turkey. The resulting pieces are remarkably detailed, and it's a wonder how the artist managed to pack it all into such a tiny compartment (and keep her hand so steady).

You can follow her on Instagram to peek at more shell paintings.
