Artist Paints by Squirting Paint out of His Eye

(Photo: Leando Granato)

Leandro Granato, an artist in Argentina, doesn't need a brush. He snorts paint up his nose and then squirts it out of his eye.

(Brief question: how does a person learn that he has this talent?)

Granato was inspired by Jackson Pollock, the American abstract painter famous for dripping and pouring paint directly over canvases in seemingly random patterns. You can see Pollock's influence in this painting by Granato entitled "Belo."

Granato calls his technique "eye painting." He uses a non-toxic paint that he claims is safe for his eyes. Some people think that he's crazy, but Granato sees himself as an artistic trailblazer:

‘I believe crazy people are often the ones that build the roads that the wise ones will then travel across.
