Leandro Granato's phrase is "I spent a lot of time painting bodies, but I was frustrated, unable to have the object like a paint that endures." Several times he was called crazy, he says. -The crazy people open the roads that the wise men will travel. Innovative, Precursor, Outgoing, Creative, bold and crazy. Leandro aims to create something new, something that characterizes the art world, so he began to develop a new form of expression which christens "Eye Painting", using a variation of his nostril that is nature, which allows him to enter paint and be expelled as tears from his eyes.
