New coverage of Leandro Granato, an Argentinian artist, has elevated his odd and unique style of art to new levels.

Granato creates abstract paintings by snorting a watercolor mixture up his nose, and pushing it through a connection near his eye.

“When I decided I would do this for a living my whole family thought I was going crazy,” Granado told the Daily Mail. “But as time went by they began to understand the art I call eye-painting.”

He may seem weird as he weeps out up to a pint and a half of watercolors to create each one of his creations. Buyers are increasingly impressed with his technique paying 1,500 pounds overseas to own a painting.

“Ever since I was a kid I knew I had a special connection between my eye and my nose,” explained the 27-year-old to Metro, who comes from Buenos Aires.

“As I grew up, I started realizing that air and liquids could go out of my eye if I put them through my nose. Now, I am the inventor of a new painting style in the art world.When I decided to do this for a living, my whole family – as well as many other people – thought I was going crazy…but as time went by, they began to understand the art I call eye-painting.”
