Tips: How to make art with human hair
Dexuan Zhang, a 66 year old man from Chengdu, creates portraits of people using human hair and wires. Zhang reported hair diameter of young people generally is around 0.07mm, elderly around 0.05mm. He patiently intertwined human hair with wires. This technique has been handed down in his family for three generations. He practices over 54 years and he made 300 portraits.

Ciao! My name is Dominique. I’m Italian and I’m proud to be a mix. My father was an Italian chemical engineer and high school teacher, with Greek and Polish heritage. My mother is Haitian, she was high school language teacher, with Dominican, Spanish, French, Portuguese, African and Native American heritage. Being a mix makes me appreciate to want to understand different cultures and lifestyles. I grew up in Italy, lived few years in Haiti, travel around main European capitals, lived seven years in China, six in Spain and UK. Traveling makes me feel that we can learn something from every situation in every part of the world.
