Before he started making these amazing mini sculptures, he used to carve tiny toys for his children out of bamboo. Take a look at this Buzz Lightyear sculpture!

Chien is completely self-taught, and has had no special training. He started using pencils for his sculptures after being inspired by fellow artist Dalton Ghetti. This one is a tiny sculpture of the “Xiluo Bridge” which is located in the middle of Taiwan.

His tiny sculptures can be as little as 0.1 mm long and can take hours to complete. He said it takes a lot of patience and a steady hand!
