Prepare to be amazed by the wonders of Bashir Sultani’s amazing salt art. This Afghan-born artist uses simple tools, such as a razor and q-tips, to maneuver the grains of salt into portraits of celebrities on a black background.
Just as I shared photos of spectacular Latte Art by Mike Breach a couple months ago, I wanted to share this unique form of food art with you.
Bashir, who has over 37,000 subscribers to his awe-inspiring Youtube channel, has created a variety of salt art portraits. From real-life historical figures and celebrities like, Albert Einstein and Lady Gaga, to cartoon and video game characters, such as the Hulk and Mario, Bashir knows how to work the grains of salt into just the right position.

Bashir Brings Color to Salt Art
Bashir has even experimented with creating colored salt art. By using various shakers filled with colored salt, he carefully pours and sculpts the drawings into colorful masterpieces.
Although I can’t teach you how to create a salt art drawing of Albert Einstein, I can teach you how to carve pumpkin portraits like this Albert Einstein portrait.
This one is cool, too. in color
