The details embedded in canvas are bizarre, absurdly detailed and colorful inviting you to look more, open up your eyes and imagination, then let yourself be carried away to a far, far away land.

For Alex Ziv, the abnormal respect noticed inside of those who devote their existence for their mechanized crafts manipulated and expanded by way of his chosen method of indicate making, pointillism.
