Midhun R.R. seems to be able to turn just about anything into a piece of art. Be it a pencil tip, a leaf, rice grains, an Oreo, or, in this case, actual human hair. In this video, he uses tiny pieces of hair to arrange a portrait of Mahatma Gandhi. The 23-year-old architecture student from Nellimoodu in Kerala, India, started experimenting with hair about seven months ago, The Quint reported. "I spray formaldehyde on the hair strands that are donated by my friends and then dry them for 20 to 30 minutes," he said. "Then I cut the hair strands at various lengths, depending on the image and then arrange them one by one using needles. It requires a lot of patience and time." He said a portrait of Gandhi took him three hours to complete. Credit: Caters News Agency
