Striking pixel portraits from packaging film

What talented hands don't make portraits of famous people out of: pencils, computer keys, lipstick and even cooking powder for cakes. But the artist Bradley Hart decided to go a completely different way. His main "canvas" is an air-bubble film. You know exactly what it is — when opening a parcel or a fragile product, you probably took out this film more than once, and then burst balloons with air on it with pleasure. But Bradley Hart does not burst - he makes pixel portraits of them.
The art project with packaging film and bubbles filled with paint is called Injections. The artist really has to inject each transparent pimple in order to inject paint of a certain color into it, or even mix several colors in it at once to get the necessary shade.
So moving from bubble to bubble, Bradley Hart makes several hundred injections a day, gradually turning an ordinary packaging film into a natural artistic object - a portrait, a landscape, or some other picture.
The process of creating paintings is quite "simple": using ordinary syringes, Hart injects acrylic paints into individual bubbles.
This is not only a long, but also an incredibly complex process.
And although the portraits are amazing, in order to understand all their beauty, you need to see the process of their creation with your own eyes."
