# Video | Portrait of Nikola Tesla, drawn by electricity




Multimedia artist Phil Hansen loves to create his works most unusual ways for artists. And how else can you draw a portrait of the legendary scientist who has devoted himself to electricity, if not using the most electricity?

Phil set out to portray Nikola Tesla using sparks from two lockable them wires that are connected to an ordinary car battery. Task was not the easiest, but the result was more than decent. We can say that this is a perfect example of the so-called pointillism, where paintings are created from thousands of point smear paint on canvas. The process of creating a portrait you can see in the video below.

Phil Hansen creates amazing pictures has been for many years. On his personal website , you can see the incredibly complex graphical installation, which he did with the help of a variety of scrap materials. Paintings from the newspaper and book clippings, pictures of earthworms from the words of people who send him their stories by e-mail and social networks. There’s a portrait of Bruce Lee created with strokes of paint stained hands on the wall, and a portrait of Che Guevara, written by his revolutionary utterances, and a portrait of a cyclist Lance Armstrong, drawn by a child trike.
