Bosnian sculptor transforms tips of pencils into unique artworks (PHOTOS)

Bosnian sculptor transforms tips of pencils into unique artworks (PHOTOS)
An award-winning Bosnian sculptor, Jasenko Đorđević (pronounced Djordjevic), can turn a pennyworth pencil into a priceless piece of art. Using an X-Acto knife and a tiny chisel, he creates one-off, thought-provoking miniatures that speak for themselves.

Đorđević’s favorite material is graphite. The 32-year-old artist transforms the tips of pencils into sculptures depicting people, animals, birds, towers and flowers so rich in detail, one wonders how on earth the tiny elements can actually fit. Just give him an inch, and he’ll show you a ‘mile.’

The virtuoso has been drawn to miniatures since childhood. The older he grew, the more fascinated he became with his craft. In 2007 he applied for entry in the Guinness World Records book with an origami boat made from a piece of paper measuring only 1.5x2.5 millimeters. The boat itself was even smaller – only 1.2x1x0.7 mm. Đorđević says he wasn’t accepted because there was no category for his work.
