Most Artists would use paint brushes or a palette knife to paint but the New York Artist, SACHA, would use toothpicks.
Since 2003, SACHA has found away to mix the colors by making circles, scratching the surface of the canvas and bringing out the whiteness of the canvas with a simple toothpick. These circles of movement are brought out in a new technique which SACHA calls CIRCULISM. Up-close you can see and feel the texture of the tiny and large circles. You can also see how SACHA, with just one color can create shades by just applying more or less circles. With CIRCULISM, SACHA has been been able to use all types of paints and has used them on all types of surfaces like canvas, wood, cardboard, paper and glass.

Hi Linda,
It really doesnt take long but it all depends on the size, details and colors... Some will take 6 hours of work and others a long time.....If you look at "Sebastian", realistic painting, that took 6 hours of work....But look at "The Suffering Bonsai" that took 54 days, 10 to 16 hours per day. Most of my work takes about 3 to 6 days to do, Example, "Lover" and "Lovers with Fetus".
Thanks for asking and im always willing to show how The Circulism Technic is done.
Thank again, SACHA

Hi Sacha,
You use a very interseting technique. Does it take a long time to create a painting?
I like your paintings. They are very sensual.
