Large paintings take up a lot of space, they win more attention from viewers and bring more money than small pictures. However, the artist Dina Brodsky swam against the current, becoming interested in miniature painting while obtaining a master’s degree in fine arts at the New York Academy of Arts. After the end, Dina managed to fulfill her long-standing dream, traveling to Europe, which received a response in her future works. The artist’s smallest work, 5 centimeters in size, takes from 15 to 20 hours of work.
To create larger works, up to 20 centimeters in size, Dina Brodsky spends 150 to 300 hours. The artist believes that the creation of miniatures is almost the same as drawing the standard size of paintings. Although she admits that physically it is a more difficult task. “Instead of sitting at the easel, I’m sitting hunched over in a chair,” she says, laughing. “It violated my posture and, probably, will eventually ruin my vision.”
