Artist uses nothing more than a pair tweezers over five years to create this masterpiece.

While it might have been easier to tackle something a little bit smaller, Liza Lou decided to take on the challenge of covering an entire kitchen with beads – each placed individually with a pair of tweezers.

The Kitchen and Backyard installation took five years and millions of beads to complete. Liza made sure to cover every visible surface with the tiny beads – everything from beer bottles and cutlery, right up to the newspaper on the kitchen table.

There’s also the backyard which includes a picnic table – complete with food that looks good enough to eat – and a few assorted creatures to complete the look.

Based in South Africa, the artist was inspired by traditional African bead crafts, and even collaborated with other local artists who have been employing the art form for generations.

It’s easy to see the level of dedication that went into this project, each bead placed to perfection to create a stunning piece of art.
