Painting in Layers Like This is Completely Mesmerizing

Oguz Uygur has mastered the art of Ebru (or paper marbling in English). Born in Turkey, he learned this artform from his parents. Not only is the end result beautiful in itself, he takes it further and shows how it’s created literally step by step, up close and personal with the work. Drop by drop, layer by layer, color by color, we watch each painting come to life.

I’ve included one of his films here, but if you’d like to learn more about him and his work, check out his site or his Vimeo channel. I think I’m still in a hypnotic trance from watching his videos…
