Lia Giraud is a creative artist who has managed to create both portraits and landscapes all through the use of algae. Through cultivating the algae growth in a specific way, he has encouraged the microbes to grow into the images one sees now.

The be able to have algae grow into such lifelike images is nothing short of amazing. Painting a picture with this quality is difficult enough, but to have the images grow in such an organic nature makes one question what else could be made with these microbes. Lia Giraud based the development of the algae on the same way that photos are processed, with a few adjustments to suit the material he used for the innovative project.
