7 Million Hand-Inked Dots by Artist Xavier Casalta

Casalta13

Xavier Casalta is a 23 year old artist from the South of France. His piece “Autumn” is part of a series representing the four seasons. It’s also the result of 370 hours spent meticulously inking 7 million dots to create every shape and shade! Click below for more images of Casalta’s incredible stippling technique.

    wait, that’s really small why did it takes so long? is it remarkable because it took too long???….yeeesss i use stippling to make art as well.

  • Something Or Other

    Wow! That’s a crazy feat, but 370 hours = 22,200 minutes = 1,332,000 seconds… which is just over 5 dots per second. Are we sure it didn’t take longer, or that there aren’t a couple million less dots? That seems like a breakneck pace to make something so intricate! Is there even time to think!?

    • Xavier

      Thanks ! I actually stipple at a speed of 5-8 dots per seconds, it’s certainly more than 7 million but this estimation is accurate enough I guess :)

Ticket Giveaway: Canal180’s 8-Day Creative Camp in Portugal

180 Creative Camp is an 8-day media arts academy hosted by Canal180 in Abrantes, Portugal, from July 2nd to 9th. The event provides a unique environment for participants and invited artists to exchange experiences, learn and create together. I’ll be headed out there to do a talk at the camp and more importantly hang with the participants. It’ll be my first time to Portugal so I’m looking forward to exploring Abrantes as well.

Tickets are still available! Also if you happen to live in Abrantes I believe there are special terms for you to participate. Head over to 180.camp for more info and to see the list of speakers and workshops announced so far (more on the way).

Now for the really good news, we have a full package ticket (350 € value) to give away to one of you, which includes participation in the 8-day camp, accommodations and food. All you have to do is share a link to your website or Instagram in the comments below. Click the link below and scroll down to the bottom of this post and use the Disqus comment widget.
