Russian artist Salavat Fidai creates miniature Van Gogh paintings on a matchbox canvas. These replicated images are realistic versions of the original paintings, but are depicted on much smaller canvases.

Each image is recreated to mimic the exact detail, color scheme and characters from the original paintings. The miniature artworks are a creative tribute to the iconic images by Van Gogh. These little matchboxes are an extension to artist Salavat Fidai's existing collection titled 'Famous.'

These particular versions of the paintings are presented in a unique packaging concept that contains a practical item. Instead of simply recreating historical art, this artist places the art on a product that can be used on a daily basis. The pieces' detailing reveals the artist's true talent and dedication.
