From engineer to sought-after “micro-artist”


“Good things come in small packages,” the saying goes… and David Lindon seems to have taken that to heart.

An engineer by training, Lindon turned his hobby into a lucrative profession, after his tiny versions of six major works sold for $ 123,000 before his first exhibition.

The collection, made up of reconstructions of Munch’s The Scream, Vermeer a girl with an earring, Monet Water lilies, Banksy Girl with balloon and Van Gogh Starry Night and Sunflowers can each fit through the eye of a needle.

Lindon, from Bournemouth, UK, said: “I am shocked and surprised at the worldwide interest my micro-art has aroused.

The series will be on display at Hammond Galleries’ “A New Beginning” exhibit at the Lighthouse Media Center in Wolverhampton until October 29, before the pieces are handed over to their new private owners.
