It doesn’t matter how crazy the term egg art may sound to you if you are hearing it for the first time, but believe you me that this is an established, hugely popular and widely followed form of art. Even Library of Congress recognizes it and there is also an international guild of egg art.

Today we are not focusing on egg art in general, rather we are only exhibiting the artworks of Wen Fuliang, a Chinese man who turned his hobby into profession and then went on to be admired by eggshell artists all around the world.

The most astonishing thing about Mr. Fuliang is that he does not has a website, nor any video on Youtube. So some of his admirers just asked a local reporter to cover him and that’s how his talent was introduced to the world.
Even after being known around the world, he still does not appreciate materialistic fame or lavish lifestyle. He is happy with what he has. He continues to convert valueless eggshells into amazing pieces of art with the same diamond tipped rotary tool that he bought ten years ago.

Here are some of his works.

It all starts with sketching the design on the very very fragile subject.

Then comes the most difficult part, carving the whole design on the eggshell.

Mr. Fuliang uses multiple tools for carving.

He takes help from designed sketches on paper to help him carve the exact image on the eggshells.

Once complete, it looks like this.
