Who needs a paintbrush when you can use chopsticks? That’s exactly how Japanese artist Makoto Endo feels. Instead of using a paintbrush, his weapon of choice is a chopstick. Heck, he doesn’t even need shoes! But, all that aside, his work is amazing. His masterful skill of applying paint splatter and blotches makes the bike look like it’s wet and rolling in the rain — even though the reference bike is stationary and nice in dry inside the studio. It’s awesome. Watch him in action after the break.
If you want to commission Makoto to do a piece for you, you’ll need to fork over $1,500 – $2,500. Or, you can order a print for about $100 – $300. Be sure to check out his site and YouTube page to see some of his other chopstick bike paintings like the ones below:
