Miniature worlds of tiny creatures painted on stones by Yana Khachikyan

Geneva, Switzerland-based artist Yana Khachikyan turns boring stones into gorgeous works of art by painting lovely tiny animals and countryside landscapes on their surfaces. The result is fascinating micro worlds that you can easily carry in your pockets.

I started painting on stones two years ago. Now it is my passion. It’s something that I never get bored of. I can spend many hours painting some small details – and I am enjoying it. For some reason I am mostly painting at nights. Sometimes I start painting in the evening and the next thing I notice around me – it’s the sunlight outside. Usually it takes me several hours up to a few days to finish one painting – it depends on the complexity of the picture.
